Email on forum "Subscribe" not working

Severity: normal Version: 2.5.14
Component: API - Subscriptions Keywords:


I am having issues with my bbPress forum to perform the following things :

  1. Send emails to the Forum Admin when a new user “Subscribes” to the forum
  2. Send email to the user who just “Subscribed” to a forum
  3. Send email to the all the admins/moderators when a new forum is created.

WordPress 4.8.3, bbPress 2.5.14

Please advice if is this is default functionality of bbPress or if I am missing something in settings?

If this is not a default behavior, can you let me know what other plugin I can use to get this working on my forum. I appreciate all the help and suggestion.

I'm not seeing this.

If I had to guess, it's possible a user subscribed to their own topic, and didn't get their own reply. If so, this is by design, because it doesn't make sense to notify someone of what they know they just did.
