Ive never been able to get email alerts when I post here for some reason? Ive bought this subject up a few times before but nothing seems to come back about it? Is this normal and nobody gets email alerts if someone has answered your post or a post your following?

When you look in upper right corner of this site you will notice your username. Click on it then select Content / Follow. From there you can change email notification preferences for certain topic. Under My profile /  Notification options there is also some settings that can help you.

Under My profile /  Notification options there is also some settings that can help you.

If you go to My Profile you will have to click on Edit My Profile. Then choose Notifications.

Or from the drop down arrow next to your name choose My Settings/Notifications.

Check what you want to be emailed to you.

Make sure to click Save Changes when done.

In addition to all the good suggestions made. Be sure to set your notifications to Immediate. Thats the least buggy method of notification.
