Is there a way to have Ask Ubuntu send me emails when new comments are posted? I can't seem to find an option for this. A lot of times, someone asks me a question in a comment and I don't know about until I manually open every question that I participated in.

Thanks in advance!

New comments (answers, updates, etc) show up in the StackExchange Global Inbox in the top right corner of the screen for all Stack Exchange sites. You can opt-in for email updates by clicking the Stack Exchange icon

Select Email Settings at the bottom, and enter the appropriate information

Once you've done so, select Save you'll start receiving emails when inbox items appear depending on your interval.
