I think what's happening here is that you all are expecting emails, which isn't how the notification system works on XenForo. To see your alerts, now, you'll need to click the "bell" icon at the top right. That's where your "alerts" will be shown.

The only thing you can receive an email from is when members interact with a topic, or forum, that you have "watched". For that, you'd look higher on the preferences page, here:

Automatically watch content you create…
and receive email notifications
Automatically watch content you interact with…
and receive email notifications
 
One last comment - I think I understand this as follows - if I start a thread and get a response I will get an email unless it is just a thumbs up then an alert; if I respond to someone else's thread I will not get an email but will get an alert. Anyway that is how it seems to be working for me. I get emails on my thread but not on my responding to others - I just get an alert. This is o.k. just want to be sure I understand.
Thanks.

There is a setting to get an email when you interact with someone else's thread too.

See the screenshot below for the setting you'd be looking for.

It's probably worth noting that you will only get 1 email from any thread until you "read" the thread.
