How to stop email notices?

Postby Forest 1100 » 13 Jan 2013, 20:42

Pieter or Keith:

Just in the past two days, my email inbox has been getting notifications of new posts in threads. Never happened before this and I have changed nothing in my settings to allow it. :?:

I don't really need or want these notifications, since I visit here a few times each day anyway. Can I turn them off? I looked in the Control Panel, but see no setting to change for this function. Not to be confused with PM message notifications, which I do have active.

Cheers, Forest

I'll try setting all options to NO, clear my cache and then see what happens.

Thanks Martin.

I've corrected a problem which caused emails to not go out. That probably explains why you weren't getting them and now you are.

If you don't want them,
1. Turn off automatic subscription to topics you participate in
2. End your existing subscriptions

You find both in the user control panel.

I don't subscribe to any topics as far as I can see and I still get emails.

For Paul and others like myself who are somewhat flummoxed when it comes to searching for preferences or settings on a computer, I think I found the way to stop the emails. Thanks to Pieter for once again directing me to the User Control Panel, but I did have to plod about there for a bit.

Go to User Control Panel/Board Preferences/Edit Posting Defaults/and set "notify me upon replies" to NO. I am waiting to see if I get any more emails, now that I found that one.

I guess the above says how well that went :!: Still getting the emails. I kinda wish Pieter hadn't fixed that! :delete:

You're half way there. You now ensured you won't get auto-subscribed anymore when you participate in a topic.

Now go into UCP, General, Manage subscriptions, and kill your existing subscriptions.

Easy. :bump:
