Hi all,
I have made sure that the Email Subscription box is checked correctly.

Queue Updates
Don't fall behind. Get reminders when shows you are watching have new episodes added.


However I am not receiving emails whenever a new show comes up in my queue! I really like to know when one of the shows I am watching gets a new episode and can be notified via email. To save some time. I did check my junk and spam emails and I have made sure that the correct setting (above) was checked. Maybe this feature only works sometimes, but it is an issue that would like addressed and fixed.

Cheers!
Nick

Yeah, that's been broken at least as long as I've been a member here. Even when it did sort of work at first and send emails, they would come days after the show came out and I had already watched them. TBH, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for it to be fixed.

Fortunately, there are things you can do...

The official RSS feed http://feeds.feedburner.com/crunchyroll/rss/anime works quite well, so if you want notifications, you can use that in at least two (or possibly more) ways.

1) get an RSS reader extension for your browser that provides notifications, for example, this one for Chrome, which is showing me I have an episode to watch:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/rss-feed-reader/pnjaodmkngahhkoihejjehlcdlnohgmp


or
2) set up a free ifttt.com (if this then that) account to create what they call "recipes" to send you an email when an RSS feed updates. It can even be as specific as looking for the text name of a show you are interested in. It does take a little of work and investigation to get it working, but once you do, it works quite well, too.
