    I plan on becoming active in answering questions. Consequently, I would like to be instantly alerted (by email) when people post to certain forums.

    If possible, i greatly appreciate it.

    I think subscribing that thread will do that.

    Yes, you can select in your personal options to be notified by email to any posts in every thread to which you have subscribed. When you post in a thread yourself, you have automatically subscribed.

    In other words, the forum already does what you want, you just haven't explored the options.

    tdod may be asking if there is a way to be notified of any new threads being started in a particular forum. [STRIKE]AFAIK, there is no way to do that.[/STRIKE]

    EDIT -- See Greg's post below.
