Some of you are clearly using this feature, and it's worth repeating this tip again and the associated warning: make sure if you use this feature, your email response doesn't include any signature information or it will be posted along with your messages! I've edited a few messages to remove this information.

 

Unless you've disabled email notifications on your account, which you can do here, you should get an email for new responses on a given thread or content you have chosen to follow, which you can do from the Actions menu:

A word of warning: Make sure to disable your email signature on these emails as they will be included in your post to CheckMates. You may not want that.
