YouTube used to email me frequently whenever someone would reply to my comment. I loved this feature and would never miss a reply and always replied back. Now when I go under SettingsEmail there is no option to get an email for each reply.

These are the options I get:

Send me emails when:

[x] Someone subscribes to my channel
[x] Someone leaves a comment on my channel
[x] Someone leaves a comment or response on my video
[x] I receive a private message or a shared video
[x] YouTube Live Event Notifications
[ ] Do not send me any emails 

They are all checked.

Is there any way I could receive an email when someone replies to my comment?

  • Have you checked your spam folder? Perhaps the messages are being mis-tagged as spam.

    wow. you are right it is in the spam folder. Its strange since i didnt mark it as spam. I just assumed because there is no option to send an email after any reply it was youtube's fault. Thank you very much sir!

As user Al Everett states, you should ensure that the message is not being sent to the spam folder. If you do find the messages there, I suggest selecting the message, and choosing the option to create filter.

Choose the option Never send to spam to avoid this happening again.
