In the following two situations I need notifications by email:

  1. Message in Facebook: I was able to get email notifications earlier, but somehow I cannot anymore. What do I need to change?
  2. In my blog when people left comments through FB (like http://blog.yam.com/shamba/article/49373574 ...from "Ta Lotus"): I don't get notifications thus missing critical messages...otherwise can I turn this function (leaving comments thru FB) off?
