Email notifications

I am pretty sure I used to get email notifications from this board when there were new posts in the Hinterlands PBP, but now I can't find where that setting is controlled.

Ideally, I'd like a single email from the forum on any day/week/whatever period where there are one or more posts made anywhere on the forum--except PBP game topics I'm not involved in.

Has anyone got anything like this set up on any PHPBB? How is it done?

Re: Email notifications

I know you can change the notification options in your UCP.

But I don’t think you can set the frequency of how often those notifications come. Pretty sure you get an email when a thread you are subscribed to gets a post. But you won’t get another email about any other posts until you’ve checked the thread.
I’d have to double check on an actual computer though, I’m on my phone.

Re: Email notifications

Yeah, Ron has it right.

You get a notification when someone posts in the thread, but until you visit that thread, you won't receive any more notifications for it.
