test & Update how to get email notifications

Hi everyone, I am going by Mia's instructions for comment email notifications-could some one reply to this post so I can test it?

   Thanks much

Ok update-I did get this to work-- here is Mia's post on how to do it.
  I did need to follow the instructions twice before I got the email from Blogger. Also, it does Not work when set to moderate comments-so I turned that off for now. 
     I have had to set to moderate because of spam comments-I seem to get at least one a month and I don't like them posting on my blog-however I can delete it once I see it.
   Thank you Mia

  2. I just emailed you and mentioned this same subject. First used your old email address so had to come here to find your current email address which would be in my email if the comments went there for moderation like they are supposed to. :/

  5. Like everyone else I’m no longer being notified by email of my blog’s comments. But you turned off moderation, and that fixed it? Very weird since I have never moderated comments. I don’t have anything to turn off. Confusing!

  8. Looks like it will work, but still confusing. Since when did we have to be “invited” to do anything we chose to do in our blog settings. Very odd.

  9. Hi Kathy. I am glad I helped.
    I am doing exactly the same to you, my friend, when I receive spam comments. I just delete them.
    That's why email notification is so helpful!
    Kisses, my friend.

  11. What a waste Blogger has caused all of you who demand to get e-mail updates. I believe that IS blogger's fix, period and that IS the official fix.
