Forum email notifications temporarily disabled

We are currently working on deploying an anti-spammer solution. Unfortunately we have to temporarily disable the forum email notification function until we get the solution deployed. Apologies for the inconvenience.

The forum notifications are now re-enabled, hopefully permanently. (We are still performing testing against our anti-spam solution that required disabling the notifications in the first place).

Does this email notification allow me to recieve email, whenever someone respond to my forum post?
Does it also work if someone respond to the forum post which is not posted by me, but I participated in that post?

You will receive the forum emails if you have subscribed to that forum.
For the posts reply/comments, this is in your accont settings...

Yeah I changed the settings in my profile and enabled it to recieve the emails but still I don't recieve any email. So for example, will I get an email, if someone reply on this particular post, as I am one of the particpant on it?

Yes you should!
I used to have similar issue, but since last week when the email notifications were activated, I am now receiving proper email notifications.
If you are having problem, then send the feedback to the team using the link at the bottom of the page. They are normally quite responsive and should sort out your issue!

WAQ... in your profile you can elect to get notifications for threads you are part of, but you can also get notifications of all activity in a forum by clicking the little email icon on the forum home page. See http://forums.teradata.com/node/8819

I can't see email notifications either. All I see is the RSS feed icon.
As far as the profile setting is concerned, I opted for email notifications, but I am not getting any email what so ever.

Okay.
Well I am more interested in receiving email notifications only for the posts in which I am participating. Is it working for you? If yes then are you using the same profile setting as mine?

Yes my profile settings are the same as yours...

Humm, then this is something which admin needs to look into in.
Neilotoole, do you have any idea why is not working for me?

WAQ, apologies for the delay in responding. I'm looking into this as part of a coming upgrade, I'll let you know if we can see what's happening with your specific account. It should work per your settings.
