    Default "No e-mail notification" doesn't work

    Hello Everybody,

    I am receiving e-mail notifications of every single reply to threads I have posted in, even though I chose the option "No e-mail notification" in my Control Panel.

    After a 2-year break I am an active member again, and I post in very popular threads in the Fun & Games section, so the huge number of messages in my e-mail box are becoming a bit of a nuisance. Any suggestions for a remedy?

    Thank you very much in advance for any constructive reply.

    Regards, Tomasz

    Have you enabled Java in your browswer? I'd go and re-check the box in question, using a java-enabled browser. Then make sure you click on apply, if such an option is available.

    Just checked: Java is (and has been) turned on in my Firefox Tools -> Options -> etc.

    Thanks for a suggestion anyway

    Hello Red5,

    Yeah, actually there was a number of subscribed threads in there; I've cleared the folder, hope that should help.

    Thanks a million for your assistance

    We've been secretly sending them despite your settings because we were worried that there would be another two-year hiatus.

    Thanks, Tdol, if that's the case, I may even accept it...

    On a more serious note: clearing the list of subscribed threads seems to have done the trick...
