Superb!
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin is extremely simple, and that's wonderful. Exactly what a Forum admin needs. Such crucial functionality should have been built into the bbPress core, and I'm surprised it isn't.

Here's what you get: after activation, under Settings - Forums, you'll get a box in which you can specify one (or more) addresses which will receive an email if a new topic is posted. Now you'll never miss another user's new message, and you can respond immediately.

If you're looking for functionality whereby users are notified, may I recommend using Jetpack Comments. This includes the option to be notified about follow-up comments (and bbPress messages are comments, so it works very well on a per-topic basis).

Thank you for this plugin ;-)
