From the board "help":

Please note that there are four different types of subscriptions:

Immediate Email Notification
This option will send out a notification immediately after a new topic or reply has been made regardless of your activity.

Delayed Emailed Notification
This option will send out a notification if a new topic or reply has been made and you're not active on the board.

Daily Email Digest
This option will send out a daily digest showing all new replies or topics for that day.

Weekly Email Digest
This option will send out a weekly digest showing all new replies or topics for that week.


Help for Email Notification of new messages is h e r e


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

I would avoid using the delayed email notification. It's a bit buggy and we're seeing some problems with it.

Make sure you change your notification type of immediate. If you have it set to delayed there is a very good chance you will not get the message. I see that your subscriptions are a mix of delayed and immediate.

Let's see what happens now and go from there. If it continues, we can do some testing.

I have noticed that, when you start a new topic or subscribe to a thread or topic, having ticked to receive e mail notifications, the board default is for delayed notifications and the change has to be made in the control panel to up it to immediate :thumbsup:

That is correct. For whatever reason, IPB designed it that way.
