    It will look like this (click to see full-size):

    Much prettier, I think. Thanks James and Ari for their work on this.

      The “Never’ option ensures that you’ll never get an instant email, mobile notification, or digest email on Hubs, questions, and forum topics get new comments, answers, or posts.  The “Always” option ensures that you’ll (big surprise) always get such updates.

    I appreciate having  a color coded category title  so I can go straight to whichever type of message I want first quickly.

    Looks nice but there are a couple of glitches on mine...

      The digest is attempting to load an image (in this case the "HubPages" logo).  You need to configure gmail to allow images to load: … wer=145919

        Thansk but unfortunately that is not the solution in my case as the emails say "Images from this sender are always displayed"

    This is good but the e-mail notification you get which includes a link when someone comments on your hub used to have a working clickable link to take you directly from e-mail to the hub in question. The link is no longer clickable so you have got to go to your hub via hub pages. Will this get addresed ?
