    I’m not getting notifications of comments even though I am under the impression I have clicked the “notify me of new comments” box. What am I missing?
    Blog url: http://greetingsfromtheemptynest.wordpress.com/

    The blog I need help with is greetingsfromtheemptynest.com.

    Hi there, I see that you have the options to have all comments emailed to you checked under Settings > Discussion. You should be receiving comment notifications as soon as the setting is enabled. Have you checked your Spam folder to make sure emails from wordpress.com are not stuck in there? For example, did you receive a copy of this forum reply by email?

    Yes, got the notification of this forum reply via email, but am not getting the comment notifications. Checked Spam folder and they are not there. Thanks for following up.

    Just to be sure, when did you enable the options to receive comment notifications by email? Did you receive the email notifications in the past, and did they just stop at some point? I just left a test comment on your blog – did you get an email notification about it?

    I turned it on a while ago and have never gotten notifications but I did just get a notification of your test comment! Hope it keeps working!

    I’m glad that it worked this time. Let’s keep an eye on it, please post again on this thread if you receive a comment but no email notification. Thanks in advance!
