I'm all about those Messages right now, apparently. Is there a way to enable email notifications for Messages received? I know I can subscribe to threads on the forum, but I can't find the option for Private Messages. Apologies if I'm man-looking and not seeing what's right in front of me.

I was just going to post the same question. It's strange that we can set up an email notification that someone has replied to us in a topic stream, but that we can't do the same for direct messages (which are usually more important, for critiques etc). I may also be missing something obvious here, but if not, would love to have that option! Smile

I've been leaving one of my browser tabs open to the forum, so I can see notification.

It does bother me, because I work with 4-6 tabs open and there is only so much space where I can see what the tab is about when it isn't active.  Yes, I'm one of those that leaves a lot of windows/apps open when researching and/or coupon clipping when shopping.

I keep tabs open to ezines seeking submissions so I see them every time I go online. It keeps me aware of what I need to do.
