    Periodically I will get a message sent to me through macrumors that I don't notice is in my inbox for several weeks. Is there a way to have those messages forwarded to an email account (such as gmail) or some notification that I have a message?

    I come to the page every so often but rarely log in. I can simply check the message box more often, but if there is an easy notification process I would prefer that.

    Any ideas?

    Go to User CP (upper left on menu) and Edit Options.

    Go to "User CP" (top left navigation), then on the left go to "Edit Options" and then scroll down to where there's a check box for this feature, "The forum can send a message to your email address to inform you when someone sends you a private message."

    I found it and checked the box.

    Thank you VERY much. This will be very helpful.
