Can anyone tell me why when I get a pm from a certain person it notifies me on my e mail. It doesn't happen when any one else sends one.

Did you use your E-mail programme to reply to them?  Some automatically save the address of people you mail and alerts you if that person contacts you again.

No Brew I only ever go on my pm though Nottsalgia, I'm wondering if it is something

the sender has done but then I don't think they have my e mail add.

Sue, I can't guarantee this will answer your query but try it anyway.....

 

1.  Click on the Bell Notification symbol at top right.

 

2.  At the top right of that, click on Notification Settings.

 

3.  Then scroll down and you'll see green ticks or greyed-out crosses on various settings.

 

4.  See if you can change any of them.

This happened to me for the first time today. I received a PM on NS from one of our members, which was Ok as normal, but then I came out of NS and went on to check my EMails as I do daily. The PM was there in my EMails? Never happened before?

Carni....send me a PM as a test, and let's see if I get a notification in my emails (because I don't normally get them for that reason).

Sue, I've run a test with a PM from Carni, and I didn't get a notification about the message she sent me.

 

I think the answer to your original query is that the message you referred to (where you got a notification) was part of a Group PM which was sent to several people.

 

If it had been sent only to you,  you wouldn't have had any notification.

Yep Sue, Our EMails were from the same person, and as CliffTons investigation discovered it was only on the several people PM that it happened? Good on yer CliffTon.thumbsup

But why should that happen with group emails and not with the one to ones, I wonder...

I ain't  even got a clue what ya'all on about. As for StuartCs list, it's all Greek to me I'm  afraid. Who follows who and who does what, totally beyond me. My lot is to post, send a PM or stick a picture on and that's  it. But I  manage. :rolleyes:

I think it's something buried deep in the operating system of the forum. 

 

A bit like asking how a television works. You don't need to know....just watch it. ;)
