Issue with Forums; not sending e-mail notifications


One of the forums is not sending e-mail notifications when a topic is added. I checked the restrictions on the forum and cannot see any issues there.

I created a test forum, added a topic, and have received an e-mail notification every time I make a change.

What are some troubleshooting ideas can you provide/share?
