I was meandering through MY VBB just now and discovered that I could have been receiving email notices when fellow VBB-ers responded to my posts. WOW! I feel dumb. All this time I was trying to remember where I posted comments or questions, and it could have been so much easier. I never knew....

Verlee...

What you are seeing in MY VBB are the postings of those that you have as a follower/friend.  For example, I have Nancy G as a follower/friend.  I can see everything she posts as well as all my postings.  But, this is not e-mail notices!  Nestle just started private messaging (PM) this past week.  In MY VBB you will see an In-box or Sent.  In-box are the e-mails the VBB members sent you and Sent, are all those e-mails you sent to VBB members.  Now, you can also delete your e-mails in your In-box and Sent.

I hope this explains what you are seeing under MY VBB.  Also, this has always been there since the new change over from the old site!

I tried to send a PM to Susan several days ago and it didn't work. I found out later that she didn't
get it. When I had sent a PM before it said message sent and this time it didn't say anything. I
think the bugs aren't worked out yet! If anyone sent me a message and I didn't reply, I didn't get
it. I will always answer PM's. I was really careful too, because this is something new for me.

Hi Susan: Is this what you are explaining? It's under Forum Notifications:

Email Notifications

Get an email when a post is added to a discussion you're watching, when one of your submissions is approved, or when someone connects to you as a Follower.

Verlee...

Yes, you found that under your Account Settings/Forum Notifications.  Now, if I add you as a favorite baker, you will get an e-mail stating that Susan added you as a favorite baker/follower/friend.  But remember, you will only get an e-mail if you are set up to get e-mails.  Also, you will only see the VBB member postings if you add them to favorite baker.  

I sure hope I didn't confuse anyone!  If you need help, I will try to explain the features.  I love working on computers!!

Carol...

I agree with you, I don't think all the wrinkles are out of the PM.  I sent you 2 or 3 PM and I only got 1 e-mail from you!  I tried sending a PM to Gail yesterday and it would not send!

Susan,  I checked my VBB and it said I sent you 2 and it didn't show the 3rd one that
I typed. It showed that you sent me 3 emails. It is not working all the time. I also still
get the message a lot of times on these forums that service is unavailable after I typed
a message. Then I have to type it all over again!! lol lol Lots of bugs yet!!  lol lol

I didn't know that, either, and had the same problem of trying to remember where I had posted and wondering whether anyone had replied - now I will check into the email thing.  Thanks!
