Is there a way to set the private messages up to send an email when a P.M. is waiting for answer?

I've looked and can't spot anything.

I've had two waiting for a month because they are marked in a part of the screen (top left) that escapes my usual attention.

If you go to the User Control Panel, and open the tab "Board preferences", there are various options available including "notify me of new PMs", which I think is the one to tick.

Cheers for that, but I already have that ticked.

I've experienced the same problem. Ticked box all. I also would expect something to pop up when one first longs in.

That's puzzling, because I certainly do get notifications. Perhaps one of the other settings disables the facility: here's what my control panel is set to.

Funnily after that I just got two notifications and I have two more in my inbox.
