You can find this option in General > Client Communication > Email settings.

not sure what that means. there is no email box as part of phpbb.
whatever email address you set in the board settings and/or in your personal profile is where the board emails go.

the best thing is to create a email address at your hosting control panel ( you@yourdomain.com )

then use that email for all board email settings.

that way you don't have to worry about your host not sending emails that are being relayed via some other domain.

The email arrives to your provider (to the address that you have configured on the server for your forum) and from there to your mailbox on your PC e.g. Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird etc. - not in your forum (Depending on the hosting provider it may take a while)
