Not getting email on new posts and comments (3 posts)

    Hello and help! We just moved our blog from WordPress.com to a third-party server - so we are now using WordPress.org dashboard. I am admin and have signed up to subscribe to the blog in order to get emails when articles are posted, but am not. While other admins in our office do get the article post emails, no one is getting emails when there are comments. I searched the forum and there are threads from several years ago mentioning this issue, but nothing current. Could this be a problem with the theme? I checked my spam folder!

    Self-hosted WordPress sites do not have email notification by default. You will need to install & configure a plugin for this - such as Jetpack.
