how do I subscribe to a chowhound post?

I want to be notified (via email) when there are new messages in posts that I have participated in, or in posts that I would like to subscribe to. Is there a way to do this? Can't find anything in my profile settings.

(bookmarking this so I remember to check and see if anyone replied)

      That's amazing - this may be the only forum out of the hundreds of forums I have participated in that does not have this capability. I think simply adding that feature would result in a noticeable increase in the number of posts made.

    2. As J said, there are no email notifications for new posts. That said, if you are on this site on a regular basis, any new posts in a thread you participated in will be indicated on your profile page. It's similar to a subscription, I suppose, save for the convenience (?) of an email notification.

        Thanks! That gets me part way there. Now I just have to remember to check that page :)

          I'd rather bookmark the My Profile page on CH instead of being inundated with a boatload of notification emails. It's the page that pops up when I want to check CH, and you immediately see new posts.
