Question about Blogger Reply?

Hey Yall!  I've got a quick question regarding the new blogger reply feature.  I am so thrilled by this new addition and of course added it right away.  Why so thrilled?  Because I had previously allowed for blogger reply comments in my emails.  Now, for some reason when someone comments on my blog I get an email in my inbox twice from them.  Once when they comment then again after I accept the comment.  That leaves two comments per person in my email box that need to be deleted eventually.  Not that I am complaining about the few comments I get but that  I am such a lazy deleter and tend to have quite a bit of junk that piles up in my email.   I am desperately trying to get rid of all the junk email I receive but it seems most companies do not pay much attention to those requests to be taken off their email lists.  Can you relate?

Real Question Is?  With the new reply feature added do I still need to have email alerts.  Does anyone know if I can close the email reply feature and still keep the reply feature on my blog?  Will it work and still alert whomever I am replying to on my blog?   Just wondering since I am assuming that the reply feature on the blog most likely sends an email to whom ever you are replying correct?   Or will it send a reply notice on your blogger homepage if you have taken off the email alert?  I'll be trying out this feature soon in response to one of your questions so do a little investigating on my own but thought I'd see if any of you already know the answer to this.
Thanks so much for you help!
Have a great day!

  1. Not sure on that, my reply option is not working so I am keeping mine the same for now.

    1. Debbie did you make sure your settings was set on "full" first then go under posts and comments and change to embedded? I am sure you've tried everything already but just in case thought I'd mention that.

  2. Shows you how much I'm paying attention; I didn't even know about the new reply feature in blogger! I definitely will not add it because I already get too many emails a day. I just cleared at least 75 just now!

    1. I know right! I am too scared to take my email off notification off of my settings to try this theory out. So far I am even getting my own reply email notifications to myself when I am replying like this to you. Hoping someone will try it out and let me know. LOL!

  3. I don't have an answer for you because I don't even know how to enable the blogger reply. I want to, but I had to switch to a pop up box just to get my comments to work again. So....

    No help from me.

  4. I didn't realize it was a new thing! I don't change any of my settings on Blogger because I am good! I am too chicken to do all the new stuff!

  5. I just get one email when someone comments, but I don't moderate my comments, so maybe that's why.
    I clicked something on Susan's BNOTP thinking I would get her reply to me to my comment. Imagine my surprise when I got 100 comments in my email all to her! So I am not doing that again! Took me forever to delete! Not clicking anything again! :)
