I was under the impression that if there was an answer to my problem that the reply would be directed to my "given" e-mail address - Am I right - - or do I have to look for replies in the body of the F1 page

I wonder if they are still waiting for a reply after 10 years? :)

You have to enable the notification of replies via email.

Go to your user CP -> Edit Options -> Default Thread Subscription Mode -> Instant email notification.

PS. Why the digging up of a 10 year old post?

I was under the impression that if there was an answer to my problem that the reply would be directed to my "given" e-mail address - Am I right - - or do I have to look for replies in the body of the F1 pageYour options show that you have "Automatic Thread Subscription Mode - Do not subscribe" selected. This means you will not get any emails unless you manually subscribe to any thread you create or post in.

Go into your UserCP (http://forums.pcworld.co.nz/usercp.php) and under Edit Options (left hand margin), select Messaging & Notification. You will see your notification options there. Change that to "Instant Email Notification" or whatever other preference suits.

One thing that annoys, is when replying to posts, if one doesnt preview the text in the reply message box before moving away from that page (say, if looking something up, or Googling etc), the text has disappeared when you go back. Is it possible to do something about that or is it the nature of the beast?
And the clock is inaccurate ;).

Or are you using the back button to return to your post on the same page?

No, he means when navigating to another site in the same tab :)

Just using the back button (it seems upon trying it :) ); normal web page behavior?

Well then I am not surprised his text has vanished. It wouldn't be in any cache as it hadn't been transmitted by posting or previewing. Using the back/forward button is a good way to double post or lose the post. :p

Sounds like a message from the authority.

If you use Firefox and have this problem a lot, give the Textarea Cache (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5761) extension a try.
