But if you can go here to post this message, you can sign in and click the subscriptions link to find the list of threads to which you are subscribed. (A thread has to be on this list in order for you to get the email.) You can then click the link in this list to open that thread and reply.
Thank you Phil. I think you mean "Permalink" when you say "click on the link" - the only "Link" I could find was "Permalink" - odd!
Why can't the site have the words "Reply to Post" - I didn't have a clue what "Peralink" meant!
Anyway - Permalink seems to have worked as I am able to send you this!
Nope. Not what I meant.
If you look at the top right corner of the web page, there's a link in blue labeled "Subscriptions".
Click it and you will get a list of the titles of all threads to which you are "subscribed". You can just click that Title to open the thread so that you can scroll down to the bottom of the thread and enter a reply in the Post A Answer box.
BTW, I don't subscribe to any threads except a few associated with the Known Bugs List. I just check the entries listed in Recent Items to find, open and respond to a thread.
And thanks for this one. I seem to be getting the option to reply without having to go to Subscribe ------- I don't know --- I sometimes want to give up!
Thanks for your help.
Yes, you should get that option. But if for some reason it doesn't or you accidentally delete that email, I've shown you an alternative way to find it.
And thank you for that alternative way. will see how I get on - thanks for all your advise and help.
