Forum Subscription (Getting email notification of forum posts)
An option when using forums is to receive postings via your email address. This provides a number of advantages such as important message posted by the instructor. You have the option of receiving forum postings to your email.
There are a number of options within your User Profile which relate to the email system.
You can change this before you post your message to the forum, so check the Subscription option before clicking 'Post to forum'.
To view which forums you are subscribed to click 'Forum' on the breadcrumbs at the top of the page when veiwing a forum.
Please note: If your instructor has forced everyone to be subscribed to a forum it will be for a valid reason, such as passing on important information. You can not Unsubscribe from a forum when the instructor has done this, the only way to stop receiving emails from these types of forums is to change your User Profile.
