    We have changed the system of Likes to a more advanced one that allows Thanks and Dislikes as well.

    You may have received emails notifying you when someone thanks you. We have changed the setting and no more emails will be sent.

    We hope you like the new system.

    It doesn't seem to matter how many times I check all my notifications are set to OFF, my inbox is still filling up with Like notifications. I had 6 by breakfast and I've just had another 13. Any more suggestions?

    That's very strange. My email inbox stopped filling yesterday afternoon, as did Richard's, I think. I have just checked, and it's empty. Have you tried flicking the steam valve on yours?

    The new 'likes' system has been set since yesterday so that it doesn't send emails. Notifications should appear in the normal menu location, however. Perhaps they were emails that got delayed in the queue somehow?
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Are you talking about your UE inbox, ems? Posts liked always did come in there. We now also have the posts we liked and were thanked for.

    N​o, I haven't had any notifications in my UE inbox. I'm talking about my personal email account (Hotmail). I've just deleted another 8.

    A temporary solution, which I used until my problem cleared up, is to send the stuff to your spam folder. Once they are marked as spam, future ones should go straight there. When you see that no more are going in there, then the problem will have disappeared, and you can unmark UE as spam. Actually, most of us are here so often that it doesn't really matter if we keep UE labelled as spam. Admins and mods can always send you a PM here - you'll see it almost as quickly as you would in your hotmail inbox.

    Thanks Jed. Before I read your message, I actually went in and changed my email address that's registered with the site to one I never check! At least they'll all go in there from now on. I'll take a look in a couple of weeks and see if it's gone down at all and then change my email address back to my normal one if it's manageable. I still can't work out why they're coming through though!
