Email notification of reply to comment

  1. I'm the administrator of a blog for an online course. I'd like for my students to be able to get an email notice when someone replies directly to a comment they've made (since otherwise they might not realize someone's replied to them, especially if the thread is a couple days old). They all have "author" status.

    Even if there's no such option, is there a way for me as administrator to restrict my notices to when someone replies to one of my comments? I don't want to get an email every time someone posts any comment whatsoever, but if it's a reply to one of my comments, I'd like a notification.

    Hopefully what I'm looking for is clear enough. I've searched on the forums for this and haven't seen any solutions, so I suspect it's not possible, but here's hoping! Thanks.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

  3. Whoops! Just realized there's a "notify me of follow-up comments by email" box to check when someone posts a comment. That's easy enough. I'll leave this us in case anyone else is as unobservant as I am :).
