When you hit the "Submit" button, your posts will not go to your email. When you hit "Post reply" they will. Simple as that. That is, they will as long as you hit the button on the bottom of the "Post reply" indicating that you want to be notified of responses to your post, "Notify me of reply postings by e-mail."
Hope that helps.

Believe in yourself. Be kind to fellow humans and animals. Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help. I will be there.
