How Do I Stop the Email Notification on Subscribed Threads?

Something isn't working correctly in the "Options" setup on my Control Panel. I have repeatedly requested that I NOT be notified by email of posts to threads that I'm subscribed to, but I continue to get emails notifying me of these posts.

I would like to stop these email notifications, but can't get them stopped. Can some moderator help me with this issue? I would sure appreciate it if they could.

Thanks.

Actually found it.....

1) Go to "User CP"
2) Settings & Options
3) Edit Options
4) Messaging & Notifications
5) Default Thread Subscription Mode
6) Select in the drop down menu "No email notification"

This will allow you to subscribe to a thread without the email.

Should be good to go....

Yep, that's precisely what I've done about 4 or 5 times, but I'm still getting the email notifications. What's next?

set up an account with a free email service (yahoo, gmail,...) and reset your email notification address to that one. That way they can send all the emails they want and you'll only see them when you feel like looking. I do this with EVERY site I have to register for. I check the address roughly once a month to clean it out and see if there's anything I should keep or respond to.

I suppose that would work, but my problem is that I use my gmail account for all email...... including from this site. Guess I'm just screwed unless I can get a moderator to make a change to something.

I like this idea. I think I'll change mine.

Yep. Need a moderator or admins help. Good luck.

I go one step further and choose "Do not subscribe" from the options page. Also, any time you reply, if you click "Go Advanced" first you can scroll down to Additional Options and choose your subscription or lack thereof before you post.

Just to make sure, after your changed your options, you went to the bottom of the page and clicked "Save Changes" right? Not an insult to your intelligence but if you aren't familiar with the software it may not be obvious.

Yes, I clicked on "Save Changes". No offense taken for the suggestion. I've been known to overlook the obvious before.

I suppose that I could choose not to subscribe, but really I'd like to be subscribed to any thread that I start or post in. I just don't need a half dozen or so email notifications in my In-Box each day telling me that someone else has posted on the threads.

Oh well, it's not a big deal. I can live with it. It's just a minor inconvenience. I'm just puzzled as to why the software isn't working correctly in my case.

Thanks

are you just getting notifications from threads you have already subscribed too, or are you getting e-mails from new threads?

I was just wondering if those UserCP settings are only proactive with subscribed threads and not retroactive. If so you may want to go to the UserCP settings and then go to "List Subscriptions" and then delete all the ones you have already subscribed too.
