I am a new owner of a SharePoint site, and am trying to set it up so that I receive an email whenever a user requests access. I have gone into Site Settings -> Site Permissions -> Access Request Settings (on the Permission Tab) and put in my email in the dialog window. Even after doing this though I am still not receiving emails when a user requests access.
The only potential issue I can think of is that I am not the original owner of the SharePoint site, and the previous owner had his email set up to receive notifications when a user requested access. We have since gone in and deleted his email and put mine in instead, but the issue persists.
Does anyone know what I can do to make sure that I receive email notifications for when a user requests access? Otherwise I will have multiple requests aging while I am unaware.
Thank you in advance for any help!
