Are you trying to check whom the post is allegedly from, Chas?
If someone quotes me in a thread, I get an email saying that the thread has received reply from Steve Maskery, when of course, it is not.

It happens when the post begins [quote="Steve Maskery"] but the post itself is from, say, yourself.

If you post a response, quoting this post, I'll show you what I get.

Ah, it's proving me a liar :)
The email to me is as it should be.
If it happens again I'll send you a copy of the email, Chas.

Thank you Steve, I've not seen any discrepancies on the notifications I receive.

Would not expect any difference as a mod. to that from a member 'Poster' but was trying to confirm if there were discrepancies anywhere after sunnybob raised the issue.

I did make that post.
But I have just checked the last two on that thread and they show the correct name, so either you have fixed it, or its a erratic fault.
