In your UCP, Notifications options, have you selected to receive an email for subscribed items?

There is . down-pointing arrowhead to the right of your username in the upper left corner of the screen. Cliuck it and select "User control panel".

Sending unsolicited emails is spamming, BTW. If they have subscribed, the default is to get both an email and a Notification.

Or maybe this???
https://snag.gy/l8jb4h.jpg

So I get only notofications inside the admin?
But why is phpbb.com sending me email when somebody replies to my topic? I never set it up by default?
I never touched any settings....so why are you braking this privacy rule?
I want to set the notifications by email.....it is my forum....I need to have this right, if you are doing this, why you are not allowing others to do the same?

There is no "you" in phpbb, it is open source software and everyone is a volunteer , so please calm down.

I am loosing tons of users who never come back and do not know somebody replied to their post....
double standards.....
I cant calm down....users complain about this for years now and nothing is done....the developers would probably need to set this up and it would take few minutes....I am pretty sure

no offense, but just because you don't understand how phpbb works well enough to tell your users how to use your board does not mean that phpbb doesn't work right.

not sure what you are talking about with this board but as far as I know, you would not be getting any emails or notifications unless you specifically asked for them.

you have to subscribe to a topic and/or at least set your notifications first.

sorry but the email says it. you are subscribed to that topic. phpbb does not automatically subscribe anyone to anything so at some point you must have clicked on the subscribe button or maybe in your profile you choose to be notified of topics you started/posted etc. it just does not happen automatically.
