Is there a feature on Stack Exchange that will allow me to receive an email notification when someone comments on my question or answer, or answers my question?


The email notifications option has been moved, from the multicollider to your profile. In order to reach it:

  1. Go to your profile by clicking on your username at the top of the page.
  2. Choose Preferences. You'll find it near your About me.

    It's some kind of hidden place. I spent some time to figure out where are the email settings. – Kostanos May 28 '13 at 4:21
  • I can't see the email settings link. Has it been moved? – Chris Snow Oct 11 '13 at 8:51
  • @Chris Uh, yes. I'll update the answer, thanks. :) – Alenanno Oct 11 '13 at 10:08

    I think it's been moved again. – jiggunjer Dec 6 '15 at 9:27

    It's been moved: (1) Click on your profile, (2) Click on the Edit Profile & Settings tag, (3) Click on Preferences in the left hand panel, (4) Under "Tags", click on advanced tag subscriptions. – Garrett Jun 27 '17 at 19:26
