In the event you missed them, I took a couple stabs at some email tutorials. The intent was to provide enough understanding to get you pointed in the right directions rather than get 'er done copy/pasta recipes. Hence, they may or may not be the droids you're looking for:
Is there any way to receive notifications for all posts?
Kind of related to my other question about default notification settings. But now I am wondering if there is any way that users could receive an email notification as soon as there is a reply to any post on the forum. Of course something that they could configure. Is this currently possible?
Has anyone solved this? Monitory my forum for any new posts and responding as fast as possible is really important to me.
As an admin I should be able to receive every new post via email as soon as they happen. Users should also get notified via email when their post is answered. Maybe there is a new way of thinking on this but you can't rely on people logging in and checking if their post was answered. Thanks.
@Joel-Haggar This could be done via a plugin.
People can already get emails when replies are made to their posts or posts they are subscribed to.
Can you tell me how you set that up? I didn't get any notification to your reply to this post. I might be interesting in contributing $'s to make a plugin like this if someone is interested in building it. Thanks.
For posts you follow, there is this option:
However, this is highly dependent on whether the mailer plugin installed supports it. Right now, I do know the Mandrill plugin does.

I was thinking about this other day, on the Ignore/Watch selector could that be extended to Ignore/Watch/Notify?
@julian Ah ha, thanks for that. I'm still learning a lot of the features. I have the sendGrid plugin and it seems to work fine.
