I just got an email saying you had replied.

You have turned emails on?

You still won't get emails, unless you do as I say above.

I am set up to receive emails.

I've sussed the problem, when checking the topic tools there's a tick against 'subscribe topic' so one assumes this means that you are subscribed. However, counterintuitively, it actually means you are NOT subscribed! On clicking it it changes to an unticked 'unsubscribe topic'.

This is very confusing and should be addressed IMO.

Andy/Roy this also caused me some confusion initially until I worked it out.
It is not very clear.
