Why am I not getting email updates? Answered

I just published my first Instructable this morning (here), and for some reason I'm not getting the email alerts I signed up for in my settings page.  Any ideas why this is?

I also get the newsletter that informs me of new projects, if that is relevant, and I checked my spam folder.

Thanks so much!

I used to have the same problem.  How often did you set the notifications to be sent at? There's four different options under the Email Alert tab-
  1. as they are made
  2. once an hour
  3. once a day
  4. once a week
Usually, I have the Messages, Comments and Following set to "As they are Made" or at least once an hour.
