How do I get responses to my posts sent to my email

If I get a response I have to keep checking support.
Why don’t they send if I have a response to my email account?

Under profile preferences on this forum there’s an email section. You can set alerts to your liking there.

Specifically, this part of the page:

Email me when I am quoted, replied to, my @username is mentioned, or when there is new activity in my watched categories, tags or topics
