The drforum doesn’t currently have the option to get email notifications of new posts in a forum. You can get email notifications of replies to your posts, but not currently of new topics.
To work around this, I threw together a quick-and-dirty python script to notify me of new of new topics. It’s a quick hack job rather than an elegant piece of code, but it works for me and I thought I’d post it here in case it’s useful. It’s in python and if you call it from cron on a unix-like system something like once per day or once per hour, then you’ll get a simple email (via cron itself emailing you the standard output of the cron job) notifying you there was a new post. The forum name is to monitor is hardwired in there – you’ll need to edit it to your taste.
