In other tech news, I’m posting this article both for future reference and in hopes it may help others who face a similar situation: by default, there is no notification when new comments are submitted to a Drupal site.
In order to receive an email notification whenever new comments are posted to your Drupal site, just follow the simple instructions out lined by Jason Hooker: Adding Email Notification of New Comments.
The techniques involved are part of the basic Drupal toolkit. First, create a new “Action” to send the email notice and 2nd, create a “Trigger” that causes the email to be sent when a new comment is posted. Jason provides the full details, including screen shots, in his informative post.
