    Default Immediate Email Notifications of New Threads by sub-Forum?

    Is there a way to get immediate email notifications of new threads started in specific sub-forums? The digest or daily summary notifications are lame. What use is a summary of the day's activity in a certain sub-forum? I've looked through forum options/notifications, read stickies, and searched the forum, and couldn't find an answer, so I apologize if I've missed something obviou s or even not obvious. If the capability doesn't exist, it should.

    Thanks for your help.

    I'm not sure this is currently a feature of the forum software, but Admin would be able to verify and/or add functionality. If there's not a response by them anytime soon in this thread you might want to shoot a PM in their direction, pointing out this post and suggestion.

    I'm trying to follow the Forum "rules" by marking this thread as "Solved" (thank you very much), but I don't see the option to mark the thread solved in the Thread Tools pull-down as shown in the sticky? What's up?

    I think this section is more of a notice area, to be used like a cork-board, and less like a problem and solution section. The option should be there in other sub-forums

    Okay, I'll accept that as a possible explanation, but it makes it that much more interesting that the sticky asking for posts to be marked as solved appears in this forum while I don't remember seeing it in others. Perhaps the request is included in the "new user" tips/FAQs that I haven't honestly reviewed yet.

    Thanks for the response.
