I've noticed I get very slow email notifications from SO. The checkbox says it will notify me daily, but generally two (2) days lapse before I receive a notice of any responses.

I've tested this by inserting dates in some of my posts.

Two days. That seems to be the best response time I can get.

    Do you visit the site between then?

I would agree with that.

Today (25th) I was informed by email of some responses to my questions on the 22nd.

I haven't looked into what effect timezone differences may have made, but the 2 day delay seems about right.

(and I visit the site every day).

    I'm surprised you got an email notification. If you visit the site every day, you do not need one, do you? Sep 25, 2009 at 13:39

    Not really. I shouldn't bother to request it, should I? ;-D

Notify more frequently than once a day?
