I made the change so that you do NOT see the replies. I believe you may have to clixk on each one individually for the ones you respond to - I will double check though.
For others who are interested - here is how you can change or set up your own notifications at this time-
Favorites and Notifications
To add a discussion to your favorites list, click the "Tools" tab button and select "Add to favorites." You can keep a list of up to 30 discussions in your Personal Zone page. Icons there will show whether your favorites have been updated since your last visit.
Click the "Notify" tab on a community page to request email notifications of new content. Delivery options may include:
Daily Email Digest - a summary of all notifications sent once a day.
Weekly Email Digest - a summary of all notifications sent once a week.
Immediate Notification - email automatically sent when there is an update.
Modify or Cancel a Notification
Click on the Personal Zone tab and then click Notifications. Click the "edit" link to change delivery options or cancel the request entirely. You can also edit your preferences directly from the email you receive.
Suspend my Notifications Temporarily
You can temporarily suspend your notifications at any time. For example, this might be useful if you were going on vacation. Select the "suspend subscriptions" box at the bottom of the "Notifications" page to put them all on hold. They will stay suspended until you uncheck that box.
Subscribe to another Member
Click the person's name within the interface, then select "notify me of new posts by x". You will be notified via email every time that member posts to the community.
I hope this helps...
