I seem to receive email notifications from this forum a day or more late. Is this a problem with the StackExchange system, or is there a setting in my profile somewhere that sets a delay for email notifications?

Thanks, Dave

I vaguely remember reading this is intentional for some reason. Stack Exchange sites are not really same as generic forums, they do a lot of things at their own pace and with own reasoning.

Also question related to site itself should be asked on Meta.


This is intentional and will not be changed.

Good link, thanks for pointing to it. – hakre Dec 25 '10 at 11:43

yes it would be nice and helpful also if the email notifications can send to users immediately after an answer/comment made in a question, also a nice feature option is to select or not if you want to receive email notifications about new questions.

thanks a lot, Philip
