Configure email notifications for Forums

The Sitefinity CMS Forums module can send various notifications to website users and administrators. For example, your website visitors might want to subscribe to a forum thread and receive emails when someone posts in this thread.

By default, if you have configured the Sitefinity CMS email settings, the Forums module will send notifications using the default notification profile. For more information about configuring Sitefinity email settings, see Administration: Configure email settings.

If you want to explicitly specify a notification profile for the Forums module (for example a profile different that the default one), follow these steps:

  1. In the main menu, click Administration » Settings » Advanced.
  2. In the treeview on the left, click Forums » Notifications 
  3. In the SenderProfile textbox type the name of the notification profile you want to be used to send emails for the Forums module. If you do not fill in a name explicitly, the default notification profile is used. For more information about Sitefinity CMS notification profiles, see Administration: Configure notification profiles.
  4. Click Save changes
