Email notifications

Is there a way to disable all email notifications, not just on a thread by thread basis? Cheers

Hi Rick

If you go to "My Account", select the Edit tab, Scroll way down towards the bottom to "Comment follow-up notification settings" (boy that's a mouthful laugh), then under "Receive comment follow-up notification e-mails" click on the drop down box and you can choose "no notifications" in there.

Hi Rick, it is not actually a drop down box, more a "tick this box" set up, as Annie said "My Account" "Edit" tab. Although the format has changes in the copy and paste, this is what you should be reading.  It is waaaaaay down the bottom of the page.

HideComment follow-up notification settings
 Receive content follow-up notification e-mails
Check this box to receive an e-mail notification for follow-ups on your content. You can not disable notifications for individual threads.
Receive comment follow-up notification e-mails

Check this box to receive e-mail notification for follow-up comments to comments you posted. You can later disable this on a post-by-post basis... so if you leave this to YES, you can still disable follow-up notifications for comments you don't want follow-up mails anymore - i.e. for very popular posts.

Hi Dale,

This doesn't gel with what I see.

There is a "Receive content follow-up notification e-mails" box which I leave unchecked.

Under that is a "Receive comment follow-up notification e-mails" heading with three drop down choices

1) No notifications

2) All Comments

3) Replies to my comment

I choose "No notifications" yet still receive notification emails?

Help.

Rick, I think what you have done sounds correct - leave the box unchecked, and select 1) No notifications.  But perhaps it only applies to threads you start/comment in after you make the changes? If that's the case, threads prior to your blanket change, you might need to individually opt out of in the actual thread (except your own generated threads, don't think you can opt out of past ones of those at all?).

I guess if, with your new notification settings in place, you start a new thread here called "test" or whatever, then someone replies to that, could test the theory that way by seeing if you get any emails.  Just a thought.

Thanks Annie, could be the case. Won't have much time for starting a thread so will see. Cheers
