How to not get e-mail notifications

Hi All: I am wondering how I can opt out of getting e-mail notifications on new posts or responses. As much as I love it-- This is my work e-mail and the Hav Forum is by far most of my mail!!!! I would like to be able to just go to the site and check/post the threads that are new or I am interested in.

I went to User CP and under "Default Thread Subscription" I changed it to "no e-mail notification" and then to "do not subscribe" but in both cases I am still getting e-mail. I still want to recieve PM's so I left that alone.

any thoughts? Melissa, maybe when you get back from your trip you can help.

Figured it out!!

Okay, go to "User CP" second from the left up to and select that. They select "edit option", if you scroll down a bit there is a place to "manage subscriptions", you can set the default to "no email notifications" or "weekly" or "daily" etc.

Even if you want to limit it to once a day, you can. Pretty cool, ehh?

Hope that helps!

After you do what Kara suggested, then make it a default that you do NOT subscribe to threads automatically. I think it takes three steps.

Go to User CP (small menu across the top)
On the menu on the left, click Edit Options
The next page has several sections. Go to the second one named
Messaging & Notification. The second option in that section is about notifications. Pull the menu down so that it says "Do Not Subscribe".
Be sure to save changes at the bottom.

After that, you will have to manually subscribe to any threads where you do want notifications.

Thanks Kara and Kimberly. I have 15 pages of subscribed threads I need to go through and unsubscribe. I guess changing it in the edit options is only moving forward. luckily I am just sitting here today with ice/heat on my foot. so far the boys have been good and not made me run after them. thanks again for the advice.

But the Control Melissa gave us on this forum is truly amazing. it is a very user friendly site.

As I am sitting here going through my 15 pages of threads trying to unsubscribe I have had a trip down memory lane by glancing at all the posts again--- all the new puppies, all the surgeries, the antics and most of all the support from this wonderful group of people.

LOL! I hear you.
I had to unsubscribe to a bazillion threads (OK, that's an exaggeration) a couple of months ago because it was overwhelming my email also.

Funny timing though because I just got an email notification to one thread that I kept a subscription. I have only four threads subscribed after all this time and that one popped up after months of inactivity.

No Marj, don't worry-- I still plan on checking new posts at least 10 times a day (I am a true MHS sufferer afterall) It was just jamming up my e-mail and it is my companies account so I have to be careful. I luv you guys- couldn't possibly just go away!!!

There are a few threads I had to unsubscibe too...like the "Two Diff Breeds" one for example! Especially when it was getting *hot* in there. I would have 4839439 emails! hehe.

What's funny is, some of the notices go to my spam box and other's don't. I never put it in the spam folder...just will start heading that way after so many.

Kara

PS. I hope you unsubcribed to this thread, I feel bad if this post is annoying!
