I have seen a couple posts here on email notifications (such as this one Does Stack Exchange have email notification option?), but none seems to answer my question. Is it possible to receive instantaneous email notification, as soon as the activity occurs, not 3 hours later (I'm not afraid of large numbers of emails). Also, I'd like to receive the email even when I'm logged in. Are these options possible?

  • Thanks @Mat - you are correct; for some reason that post didn't come up in my Google search results. Where is the "Related" list on the right? I could only find the "Linked" list. – JHN Jan 19 '15 at 10:35
  • Assuming we have the same font sizes, it's right here => – Mat Jan 19 '15 at 10:37
  • Okay I see it now! I wonder why it didn't show up earlier. ("Linked" was followed immediately by "Hot network questions") – JHN Jan 19 '15 at 10:39
