    Is there a way to subscribe to a thread and get every reply sent to you via email, instead of just the first? The Sig Forum is set up this way and I really like getting all the responses when I'm away from a computer.

    I can't get the system to stop sending me every reply. Maybe we can trade computers.

    So are you guys getting the notifications with all the replies to each thread? I do get multiple notifications, but only one notification PER thread I'm subscribed to.

    You can unsubscribe to each thread under the thread tools. Not sure if you can just turn all of them off.

    Yes, you can subscribe and unsubscribe to every thread you post in and decide what type of notification you receive when someone replies again to that thread. However, what I have a problem is- is that you automatically subscribe to a thread the minute you reply to it!

    Any way you can set a feature to shut that off Admin?

    You can change the automatic thread subscriptions by going into your User CP (upper left), then Options, then changing Default Thread Subscription Mode.

    Unfortunately it doesn't look like vBulletin has the ability to send an email reply not notify you of every new post, but I can add that to my list of things to look into :thumbup:

    If you don't hear back within a week, shoot me a PM.
