I just created a Microsoft Answers account (http://answers.microsoft.com). How do I associate and email address with this account so that whenever someone responds to a posting, I am emailed?

When I created my profile, I was never asked for an email address. Also, when I go to edit my profile, I don't see anywhere that I can associate an email address with my account.

Is it possible to associate an email address with my Microsoft Answers account (http://answers.microsoft.com)?

The simple answer is that you can't do it.

You can set up alerts for your Microsoft Live account, however this will not alert you to new posts on the Answers site.

The site that allows you to set alerts is here: http://alerts.live.com/Alerts/Default.aspx

Sorry...

Knowledgeable--I went to the page
http://answers.microsoft.com/  ,
clicked on "Ask a Question" ( near top right) and at the bottom of that page
http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/newthread
there is a box to check to be alerted if someone responds.
