Modify Forum Notification Options
In order to stay notified of recent posts on a forum, the Notification Options option is helpful in doing so.
Note: New post notifications will be sent to the user's external/institutional email address, not via the Messages tool.
Go to Forums.
Select the Forums tool from the Tool Menu.
Click Notification Options.
Choose your notification preference.
Select whether an email is desired for whenever a new message is posted on the Forum, every new message posted on a conversation that the user has contributed to, or turn off all notifications.
