I am not getting email notifications when there are any posts to my questions on any Stack Exchange site. I have stackexchange.com, stackoverflow.com and superuser.com added as trusted senders and I bookmark or mark as a favorite the posts I'm interested in. I do get notifications on my iPad's Stack Exchange app. I'd prefer email notifications and don't use an RSS feed.
Some posts have indicated to use the * on a post to mark it as followed but Stack Exchange sites do not show the * any longer (it didn't work anyway).
