Currently I have my comments set so that when you hit "reply" to a comment, it will insert @USERNAME of the person you are replying to. I am trying to find out if wordpress emails that user to let them know that I have replied to a comment they left or if this is something I will have to manually code in?

Hope this helps, best of luck!
