Was receiving email notifications for it seems like every post on these forums. Went in, turn off email notifications for everything thing. Check again just now. Save settings are everything is "No" or "Turned off".

 

But still receiving email notifications from these forums for every post that anyone makes here.

 

How do I turn this thing off? My inbox is loaded.

    Hi chillspike,

     

    I went ahead and removed your current subscriptions, so the emails should subside. For future reference, go to your profile page and then go to the Actions widget on the right. You have a couple ways to manage this. In 'edit preferences' there is a tab to set up email notifications the way you like. Obviously, you know this already, however, I am not sure why your changes didn't stick. I would just try again. In the 'manage email notifications' section, you can determine which threads or users you would like to maintain.

     

    Hope this helps!

    FYI, if you have subscribed to a thread, forum or person either manually or automatically, and you change the preferences as you did, that will not affect the existing subscriptions. It will only stop new ones. To stop existing notifications you need to go to click on your userid at the top of the page, then on "Manage email notifications" to the right. You can then cancel any or all of the notifications you are receiving. If your inbox is truly "loaded" is is likely you have inadvertantly subscribed to a forum.

    Go to your profile page.

     

    1. Select the Notifications tab clear out anything that shows there.
    2. Go back to your profile
    3. In the Actions box select Preferences
    4. Select the Email Notifications Preferences tab
    5. Set the values as you like
    6. Go back to your profile
    7. In the Actions box select Manage Email Notifications
    8. delete any that show

     

    that should do it
