When someone does a mention of me, how do I get notified? I've missed a few because I didn't know I had them. I've looked through my preferences and can't find anything....
Your Inbox can filter on mentions.

OK, I see that now. Is there a way to get a 'real' email notification?
In your preferences (?), choose what Inbox items to be emailed. You may get a little more than expected.
I get the daily emails but I guess I’ve never noticed that it calls out mentions.
I'm trying to get less notifications from everywhere, not more...:)
I hear you -- but I don't get many direct mentions so my signal/noise ratio is good. I'm mainly concerned that I don't miss people wanting to add their packages to the Data API / Admin API Packages/Wrappers For FM 17+ page.
Are you getting email on that thread?
Unfortunately I do not. I went back through my daily emails to the last time I had a mention and there was nothing in the email. I looked for a few days after as well and didn’t see anything.

What you receive by email depends on the preference settings. You may "uncheck" Inbox: Activity, for example and still receive the Inbox: Direct social actions, Inbox: Alerts, Inbox: Badges. (Inbox: Moderation is not available for most of us.)
IF you also wish to receive notifications from the thread directly, you can set up a custom stream (It will appear under the News & Stream Notifications). And ONLY include the document (Data API / Admin API Packages/Wrappers For FM 17+ ) in that stream.
When you only want to follow the single document and receive all posts (except your own):
This is what I've had set up for ages (see attached). I've gone back again and again through my emails and I don't see anything in an email that shows any mention. I don't have any sort of filtering on emails so I'm getting everything Jive is sending. Can you show me what it looks like when you get a mention in your email?
Do you have more than ONE account? I found this too: MarkDeNyse
You may have a problem with the settings is you are being mentioned by one, but not the other?
Let's see if tsplatypus has time to research?
Hmm, no idea about that other account - I've been using this one for 7ish years.
I did receive an email just now that said I was mentioned by you, (yay!), but I had to dig that out of my trash folder where every message sent by Jive goes (I mis-stated I had no filtering). I have to have that filter on because I can find no way to shut off each posting and still receive the daily summary which is all I really want (I don't understand why I get all the emails blasted at me in real time when I tell it all I want is a daily summary). It's just a shame this system is so confusing - I liked the way we used to get a true daily digest of all the postings and not just a 'summary'. I know, whine whine
See about a custom stream.
