Yes, it is. I am not sure why people tick that box; I suspect they don't actually know what it does

The default setting for a given topic is whatever the first poster has set in his profile. Not sure what default is when you set up your acount; I suspect it is to use BB tags. But if someone happens to change it, then that is grandfathered in for all topics that person starts.

Our logs show that in the past 24 hours, mails have been sent to the email id linked to your profile. Can you check your spam folder to see if they are in there?
Interesting ! I have just checked the spam/junk folder and nothing has been received. I am able to send emails from a separate account to that email address. I shall contact Tesco who host the address.
Edit: The last emails I received from the Ranch were on 1st April and entitled "Book Promo: WildFly 8 Administration Guide" and "[Big Moose Saloon] Message posted: Implementing complex Functions for BigDecimals" .
