Postings in Email

In the past (pre-subscription time), whenever there was a new posting to a thread I subscribed too (dual meaning of “subscription;” sorry about that), I would get a link to the new posting. That was fine, and that is usually the case now, but occasionally along with the link I get a copy of the posting in my email, which doesn’t obviate my going to the link because there may be further postings. My question, not of earthshaking importance, is why I sometimes get the posting added to my email?

With apologies to Bret Harte and all who may be offended, right up front here:

Which I wish to remark,
And my language is plain,
That for ways that are dark
And for tricks that are vain,
This vB stuff is peculiar,
Which the same I can’t rise to explain.

It’s just weird software sometimes and I cannot tell you why it does what it does when it does it, even when it doesn’t.

If it bugs you enough, please send me an email on this (; you may well have found another undocumented feature. I’ll see if I can track it down.

Are you saying that in the email you get the latest post - but not in every email? So you’re receiving some emails with just the link to the thread?

FWIW, this isn’t happening to me. Every email I get from the board contains the latest post. Now, some posts may have been made in the meantime, and I won’t get emails about those, but I haven’t received any emails with no post in them.

Let me make myself perfectly clear. Every email I get has a link to a new post. However, in addition to that valid link, on a few occasions, the email itself will have the posting in it, w/o the need of my going to the MB. Hey, no big deal. One of the mysteries of life, I guess.

No, I undrestood you. I’m just saying it happens all the time with me - I always get the post. I think it’s been happening since the software change.

What I don’t get are emails with no posts in them at all.
