Email alerts to forum replies

A few times now I've posted in topics and then forgotten which topics they were... and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

The option to get email alerts sent to your registered email address when a topic you created or posted in receives a reply would be very handy. Or even a subscription based alert (ie. a 'Subscribe' button in each topic so people can be notified when there are new posts, regardless of whether you've posted in it or not). I think it would also increase participation in the forum as it's so much easier to remember where you've posted and what discussions you're involved in at any point.

There are a lot of things I would like to change with these forums. Basically I would like to completely remove them and start again with a better package that offers additional features. But I don't think that's all that likely unfortunately. I will have a look now in the administration interface and see whether there is any email notification feature ...

EDIT: I spent 10 minutes looking. There is no email notification feature installed on this server. There is an additional module that you can download from Drupal and install, however I don't have rights to the server which would allow me to do that.
