Are there email notifications for comments on Confluence Questions?

Hi everybody,

since the general notification integration of Confluence Questions into Confluence is a bit poor, it often happens that I am not getting the updates because I am just overseeing them or just because I did not get any update. I am watching every questions.

  • Question is asked - I am receiving an email and a HipChat notification - cool, but a workbox notification would be cool as well, isn't this the use case for that box?
  • Someone leaves a comment on a question - nothing happens. No notification, nothing, nada. I would expect the same level of notifications as for a question itself.
  • Someone leaves an answer - I receive an email, not HipChat notification, not workbox notification. Same expectations here.

Any tips for me? Workarounds? Do I oversee something? Did I messed up with some settings?

Thanks a lot!
