Is it possible that way back, at whatever time you received your last email notification of a new post in this thread, you saw it and read it in your email, but didn't actually log in to WS to 'view' the post here... and in the meantime, posts kept piling up? So then when you received a different notification and did log in to WS, you saw the pile of posts in this thread that had accumulated? jmo.Thank you, I know how the system works. I should receive an email notification for the first new post after I've been here, but that's not happening anymore, even though my settings call for it. I came here after receiving an email notification of a private message from a member and then saw there were 12 new posts. Notifications are not going to spam. I'll try unsubscribing and resubscribing to see if that helps. Sorry to clutter this thread with my problems.
