Subscribe to Discussions via Email

 
 AVMA’s Online Discussion Forum offers a handy feature that lets you follow any or all discussions via email. When you sign up to do this, you will receive all messages in your chosen discussions via email, and you will be able to reply via email as well. This means you can participate in discussions on the go, anytime, without having to sign back into the Discussion Forum on AVMA.org.
 
There are two ways to sign up for email subscriptions. You can subscribe to individual discussions that interest you; or you can subscribe to an entire discussion group, to receive email notifications of all new discussion threads posted by the group, as well as all individual messages and replies within the group.
 
Here’s how to subscribe to email updates:
 
NOTE: You must be signed in to AVMA.org to use the Discussion Forum and sign up for email subscriptions. If you're not sure how to do that, get sign-in help here.
 

Subscribe to an Individual Discussion:

 
1.    The email signup icon is located at the top of each discussion. It is a small, white envelope icon.


NOTE: If the envelope icon is orange, you are already subscribed to the discussion. Don’t click on the orange icon, as this will unsubscribe you from the email notifications for this discussion.
 
2.    If you hover your mouse over the envelope, a tooltip will appear, identifying its function.

 
 
3.    Click on the envelope icon to subscribe to email notifications about that individual discussion.
 
4.    When your email subscription is enacted, the envelope icon will turn orange.
 
5.    If you want to stop receiving email at any time, all you have to do is click on the orange envelope icon. This will cancel your email subscription, and the envelope will turn white again.

Subscribe to a Discussion Group (all messages in the group):

 
1.    Navigate to the discussion group you want to follow via email. For example, if you want to subscribe to the Animal Welfare group, you can click on the Animal Welfare link from the Discussion Forum landing page.


2.    On the landing page for your chosen discussion group, which lists all ongoing discussions within the group, click on the white envelope icon at the top of the page, below the purple bar.
 
 
NOTE: If the envelope icon is orange, you are already subscribed to the discussion group. Don’t click on the orange icon, as this will unsubscribe you from email notifications for the group.
 
3.    When your email subscription is enacted, the envelope icon will turn orange.

 
4.    If you want to unsubscribe from the discussion group in the future, all you have to do is click on the orange envelope icon. This will cancel your email subscription, and the envelope will turn white again.



Manage all of Your Email Subscriptions:

 
1.    You can view and manage all of your email subscriptions at any time through the Forum Tools link, located at the right side of the purple bar on all Discussion Forum pages.
 
 
2.    Hover over the Forum Tools link, and a dropdown menu will appear, offering you several options. Click on the link to View Email Subscriptions.

 
3.    You will be able to see all of your discussion forum email subscriptions. If you want to cancel any subscriptions, simply click on the corresponding Delete link.
