How to receive email for responses to posts on Stack Overflow

I want to get an email notification when someone answers or comments on a question I have asked. (Currently I just refresh over and over).

I've looked through my account setting on S.O. and can't seem to find this option I missing something?

If you open the MultiCollider SuperDropdown in the upper-left of the screen, you'll see an "Email Settings" link on the bottom of the box that will allow you to setup this.

As an alternative way of getting there, you can also click the "Ask Question" button, and just click the link right above the "Submit Question" button that says "Would you like to have responses to your questions sent to you via email?"

It should be noted that the only options available are Daily, Weekly, and Every 3 Hours, so this probably won't be a very good substitute for "refreshing the page over and over". If you're looking for a more immediate alert of any new responses, make sure you have Javascript enabled and you should see a little red circle appear by the MultiCollider SuperDropdown when you get a new response.
