I was wondering if there was a way for me to be emailed each time someone placed an order on my site. I don't always want to be logging on just to see if someone placed an order. Does any one know how to do this?

I believe first you have to enter an Administrative email address in the Operations > Settings > General tab.

Now go to Sales > Order Statuses. Click Edit next to Payment Received. Check the box under Email Admin. Click Update. Do this for the other Order Statuses you want and that's it. Payment Received is the default for when a customer uses a credit card or PayPal. If you use GC, it will be only under Order Received.

Just another idea -- but I have e-mail confirmations sent to the customer and the admin.
The admin e-mail we have set up is a Gmail account (yes, that has it's pros/cons too), however, you can setup filters in Gmail to send an e-mail to anyone else you'd like by filtering for all e-mail from your "orders@...." (where ever you have your order update e-mails coming from) combined with the subject "new order". Take your phone's e-mail address and you can even get text messages when you get a new order. This works great for us - and I don't think I've ever had a false positive (or whatever you call it? - a forward that wasn't a new order). Cheers.
