Comment Moderation E-mail to Post Author
[resolved] .3 is not working (2 posts)

    I am using the atahualpa theme on a privately hosted blog with multiple authors. I have yet to find a plug in that will make sure an author is alerted by email when a comment is made on his/her post.

    I tried a few plug ins, none of which worked. I had hopes for this one which I have installed and it also does not work:
    "Send Comment Moderation E-mail only to Post Author"

    Thanks so much!

    Hi Marina,

    Actually the two words "MODERATION" and "ONLY" in the name of this plugin are essential. The rest is up to your WordPress settings on the Settings > Discussion admin page:

    E-mail me whenever
    check "Anyone posts a comment"
    check "A comment is held for moderation"

    If your WP installation is not sending any mails, there is something else going wrong. Verify if sending e-mails via PHP is at all possible on your hosting environment. If not, as SMTP plugin might be helpful to send mails via an external mail account.
