:? I received a message which does not appear in the regular message context where all the messages and answers appear. It said something about me having selected to receive messages via e mail???

Anybody know whats going on and how I can change it?

You may have accidentally ticked "Subscribe to Message"?

Top left of the message screen.

I'm trying to find this option now, because I'd prefer private messages to come to my email account, but I can't see "Subscribe to message" anywhere?

Which window do I need to be in to find it?

Under User Control Panel - Board preferences - Edit global settings I have ticked YES for Users can contact me by e-mail: (was NO).

OK I found it and it does something completely different. By subscribing to a thread, you get an email whenever a new post is added to the thread. This is like the standard emails to tell you you have a private message.

Thanks everybody. I will give it a try. However I dont remember ever having ticked any of those boxes. I really dont know how it suddenly started happening. Still, hopefully all will be well. Will confirm.
