I don't understand the new email settings dialog:

Very confused whether that sends me emails every three hours (as per the drop down) or not at all (as per the checkbox). I'm unable to uncheck the box.

    confirmed, rendering is broken in IE8. We'll have to get a workaround in place. – Jeff Atwood Oct 6 '11 at 1:51

There was an issue in the html being rendered that other browsers glossed over - IE8 is such a stickler for valid markup :)

What browser is that rendering in? Chrome's rendering still makes it clear that the drop down only applies when the top button is selected - but that won't help you with no top button at all.

  • It was IE8 but this has been confirmed as a problem with IE8. It was fixed over in the SharePoint site so maybe it's fixed here too. – Rob Nicholson Oct 13 '11 at 17:56

Works for me in Firefox too

Works OK in Safari (5.0.6) -- Smells like a browser bug Rob.

When it renders correctly it's pretty self-explanatory :-)

    @MarkM, don't you have "stink beetles" in your part of the world? You can smell them from a fair way off. – John Gardeniers Oct 5 '11 at 21:48

    @MarkM And those "flying ants"... Almost a sweet, floral, or citrus smell. Right at the start of each autumn around here. – jscott Oct 6 '11 at 0:49
  • I was more referring to the fine scent of a June Bug hitting the wires on a bug zapper. Smells like bacon! – voretaq7 Oct 6 '11 at 14:40
  • Browser quirk I would say more than a bug. It's easy to say in hindsight they got IE8 wrong but that's hindsight for you! – Rob Nicholson Oct 13 '11 at 17:59
  • @RobNicholson - actually per the accepted answer the got IE8 (too) correct, so it was a bug with the SE codebase. It's easy to point at IE and say it's broken though, as it has a long history of . . . how do I say this politely . . . sucking so hard it blows ;) – voretaq7 Oct 13 '11 at 18:28
