getting e-Mail notifications for your tacked on post.

You don't know that. It wasn't FLAGGED as resolved, but
the links that got posted in the original thread may have
made the problem of the original poster go away.
Unfortunately a good number of our members who receive
valuable help don't bother reporting back whether or not
they got things sorted, or flag their threads as solved.
