I receive email alerts from subscribed threads. I still do not receive from subscribed forums. I also tried clicking on the "WATCHED FORUMS" button at the very top of the website. This gives you a list of your subscribed forums. There's a checkbox next to each subscribed forum and then their is a drop down dialog. It gives you the option to receive emails/alerts. I tried this, but it didn't work either. I also made sure that every option to receive notifications/alerts is checked in my preferences.
