That's how they are notified if they are subscribed to the thread,  I want to know how after they reply they get subscribed to the thread automatically.

Ok, went there and :

Automatically subscribe to every forum
Please choose which user groups you'd like to automatically be subscribed for email notification of new topics (not replies) in every forum available to them. This means that members having a selected PRIMARY group will be emailed everytime there is a new topic and they are not online to view it.
Note This will only send the email to those who have chosen to 'Allow emails from the administrators'.

I don't want them to get a e-mail everytime there is a new topic, only if there is a reply to a topic that they have started or posted in.  As you can see on the attached the box is unchecked by default right now, I want it checked by default.  This is below each topic or post you make. view

how about this:
http://community.invisionpower.com/resources/documentation/index.html/_/documentation/administrator-control-panel/system-tab/system-settings/forums-topics-posts-and-polls-r84

sorry for the run around but I do not have direct access to an Admin CP for this type of forum software so I'm left going through the help files posted on their website
