    What "instant email"? Notifications problem message.

    According to the Notices message about resetting notifications, at the top of the forum for when member is signed in, I followed the path My PF, Edit Options, and I never found any "instant email" item. I only find these:

    • Receive email from administrators
    • Receive email from other members
    • Receive friendship request email

    What is this "instant email" item? It is definitely not shown in the link path of this front message:
    PF Members, in an effort to solve the notification problems, I must have reset everyone's preference to "instant email". This could result in more notifications than desired. If so, please go to "My PF" and then "Edit Options" and change the notification setting. Sorry for the trouble. Good news is that notifications are working again :)

    Right under those options there is a heading called "Default Thread Subscription Mode" with a drop down of options. Look there :)

    Good. I see it. I might 've missed seeing it earlier when I checked or maybe the system was working oddly at that time/moment.
