There are some posts that seem interesting, and I want to get an email notification when answers are posted, even though I'm not the one who asked the question. How can I do that?

Each tag question has an Atom feed. You could use Feedburner to consume the feed and subscribe to the Feedburner feed via e-mail.

  • For tags, the global tag sets support emailing out of the box, without the need to use the feeds. But: each question has such feed too, so this still works. – Arjan Dec 21 '10 at 21:28
  • @Arjan: Nuts! I forgot about tag sets. You should make that an answer and I'll delete this one. – ale Dec 21 '10 at 21:29

    No, @Al, the question is about questions, not tags. So your answer is correct, when you replace tag with question! – Arjan Dec 21 '10 at 21:30

    Ah. The original question said "topics" which I took to mean "tags". It's since been edited, and thus my original answer makes no sense. – ale Dec 21 '10 at 21:33

You could use RSS Feed for this. You can take http://stackoverflow.com/feeds for last 30 questions

  • @ykartal : Yeaa, but I don't like RSS Feeds. Don't we have email notifications? – abimaran Dec 8 '10 at 11:57

    On user profile page at the "Prefs" TAB only "I'd like email notifications of activity on questions I've asked" "I don't want notifications of activity on questions I've favorited" options available – Yusuf K. Dec 8 '10 at 12:02
  • @ykartal : Thanks, and I want to get notification from my desired topics which I don't created. How can we do this? – abimaran Dec 8 '10 at 14:22

    Hımmm, I understand if second option not checked and you have favorited questions, you would take notifications from site. For Favorited the question you can see a star under the question's score. – Yusuf K. Dec 8 '10 at 14:41

    In addition, I think stackoverflow.com sends daily e-mail notifictaions to users not mail them at the same time(instantly on post sent) – Yusuf K. Dec 8 '10 at 15:05
