You can see the number of new messages or forum postings from either My Workspace or your site's Home page. You can also set your preferences for whether or not you get email notification of new messages or new postings on forum conversations you have contributed to.
To see if someone has added a new message or forum posting to one of your sites, go to your Home page in My Workspace. Under "Message Center Notifications", you'll see a list of your sites, and the number of new messages and forum postings for each. If there are no new messages or forum postings, you'll see "none" beside your site. (Sites in which neither Messages nor Forums is turned on will not appear in the list, nor will sites that have been hidden.)
Messages and Forums notifications for each site are also displayed on the site's Home page, where you can access the following functions:
New Messagestakes you to the
Messages Receivedfolder for that site.
New in Forumstakes you to the forums for that site.
Note: "Message Center Notifications" will only appear on your site's Home page if these tools have been added to your site.
To modify email notification preferences:
Yes. Type the desired email address in the text box provided, and then click
Save Settings. This will forward a copy of each message to the email address you entered.
Note: You cannot reply to Messages from the forwarded email messages; to reply, go to the Messages tool in your site.
