Topic Overview

When you subscribe to a discussion-board forum or thread, you will receive an email that will alert you when a peer or instructor has replied to the thread. The email will not send the post, but inform you of the new comment.


Forum or thread subscriptions are not a default - the instructor must enable the setting.
