I receive emails from serverfault with the open questions which I occasionally open and try to answer.
Sometimes there is a question to which I don't have an answer, but I'd like to follow the conversation as someone may post a solution. Unless you make a posting you can't click on the 'notify' checkbox.
The only other way is to leave the thread open in the browser and refresh it every now and again.
Can anything be done to enable this type of functionality? Is there already something there which I've missed
