    Is there a way to get emails not just alerts besides the standard forum post reply. I want to be able to have an email everytime i get an alert.

    There is a user preference for the default watch state. It's an opt-in user preference at the time of posting. Run this query to set the preference to email:

    UPDATE xf_user_option
    SET default_watch_state = 'watch_email';
    Run this query to enable email alerts for all currently watched threads:

    UPDATE xf_thread_watch
    SET email_subscribe = 1;
    Here is a query if you wish to enable watching + email for all existing threads (including threads that aren't even watched right now):

    INSERT INTO xf_thread_watch (user_id, thread_id, email_subscribe)
    	SELECT user_id, thread_id, 1
            FROM xf_thread
    	email_subscribe = VALUES(email_subscribe);

    From PHPMyAdmin? And how do you restrict to a single user or group?

    I've tried a third party utility, Forum Watch, to make this happen, and it is only partly successful. I get some emails of new posts, but not all.

    But this should be a feature built into XF without tricks.
