2nd/3rd admins not receiving comment notification email (5 posts)

    I work at an organization that is hosting several WordPress blogs. I am the primary admin for all of them, but have given other individuals admin privilieges for individual blogs. However, when people comment on the blogs of these other admins, only I receive an e-mail notification. The admins' current settings are to e-mail whenever anyone posts a comment, or a comment is held for moderation. Yet they receiving no email after comments.

    Any help with this issue would be much appreciated!

    Comment notification goes to the email address that is assigned to the author of the post.

    I want admins to be alerted whenever a comment is submited, so that they know to go into the dashboard and approve it. This is definitely possible, because I AM getting these e-mails.

    I can't get that to work. The only comment notification I'm getting is to the site admin, not the post author. I've searched this support forum and Google, and found conflicting answers.

    This documentation says "...will generate an email to the author of that post." http://codex.wordpress.org/Settings_Discussion_SubPanel

    This support post says "By default, the email goes to the site admin, not the author." http://wordpress.org/support/topic/374314

    There are many, many examples of opposing statements. Which is it?

    I've tried changing the settings at Settings > Discussions > E-mail me whenever, and Before a comment appears. Nothing gets an email sent to the post author.

    Can I get the post author to receive comment notification without using a plugin? If so, how?

    Thanks!
