Hi: I can see that message every time I to the control panel>manage subscriptions. The fact is my posts are not listed there, save the first thread I opened. Could you tell how I should proceed?

I will make a direct question: why does the message "You are not subscribed to any forums appear"? How do I do to subscribe to a given forum and what's the benefit of it?

Obviously because you are not subscribed to any, just like the message says.
No sense in explaining hat all ready is in the FAQ:

How do I subscribe to specific forums or topics?

If you look at the bottom of this page you should see (next to Board Index link) a subscribe to topic link, click that and you will be subscribed and should receive a notification by email if somebody posts a reply. if you are already subscribed I think it shows an unsubscribe link (going from memory as I'm not subscribed to this topic)

But there is also a box "Notify me when a reply is posted" when I post, below the white window. Are the two things equivalent?

Thanks. A bit redundant, isn't it.

Best not to reply to this OP, he is at worst a troll and at best a very lazy and selfish community member. That is, if his posting history at LQ is anything to go by [a 0.01% ratio of helpful votes:post count does not inspire confidence]. He has posted a large amount of threads there in the last few days and has been accused of 'polluting' the forums.

Sorry, I do understand what you are saying but was curious to find out what OP considered was redundant as the two features obviously (to me) have a purpose in different situations. But I do not want to aid in the pollution of this forum so will heed your advice.

and on LQ, ever polite and newbie friendly, very strict against off-topic posting and insults, on LQ this really means something.
