    hi @Greg Bernhardt

    Don't know if you have made some changes ?
    3 days ago I started receiving email notifications to watched threads/alerts of quoted posts etc
    I have never had these before and I cannot seem to stop them.
    email notification option is turned off in my profile preferences
    and I have repeatedly clicked on the link in the bottom of the email to stop emails
    yet they still come


    using the disable all emails option takes me to a www page to update settings which I do


    regards
    Dave

    When you post a new thread check to see if the "recieve notification" checkbox is ticked

    Hi Greg :smile:

    no its not.
    but this isn't even really about threads I started, the email notifications are occurring for any thread that I have responded in

    cheers

    Hi Greg

    Thanks,
    have done that now and will see if that solves the issue
    was just strange that it started sending emails all on it's own without any prompting from me hahaha
    no big deal, was just strange :wink:

    cheers
