Where can I go to disable email notification? Thanks
Look under the Options Section here: http://forums.macrumors.com/account/preferences
Thank you. I thought it would be under notification.

It sometimes takes a while until everything syncs, if it's still doing it in 24 hours let us know.
Also check the individual threads settings at the top (gear icon) for emails you get from them.
I think previously subscribed threads will retain their settings. As I recall each email notification should have an unsubscribe link at the bottom somewhere so that could be used to unsubscribe from email notifications that were signed up for prior to the change in settings.
This is an interesting thread for me.
I have the opposite prolem - which the support folks have been trying to help me for several weeks, but so far, no fix.
My notification emails stopped about a month ago, maybe longer, and I do not receive any alert notification emails.
I made no changes to my account - the emails just stopped coming.
My settings show notifications all turned on, and I have tried toggling all settings, sitting for a few hours, then turning notifications back on. The settings don't change my results - I get alerts in the top bar of site window, but no emails. Nothing wrong with emails, because I get responses back from support, but not actual alert emails.
I guess this is a hijack, sorry - but I am curious if others have similar problems?
Some folks may look for methods to stop emails. I would like them to come again
I wait (semi-patiently) for site support to do something, but nothing for several weeks.
Try visiting http://forums.macrumors.com/watched/threads/all
And you can check them off and then select "stop email notifications"
I think I fixed your issue.
I have actually received some notification emails since you did (something?)
What did you do that the "support" folks couldn't seem to figure out?
I have been trying this through site support, without apparent affect.
I had fired off several emails, back and forth, with no real fix till today.
I guess you know "da trick!"
Never mind, don't really care what ya did. Looks like it works, and all is good!
Ya support should have figured it out. I looped them in so it will be a quick fix in the future.
TBH I'm considering deleting my macrumors account because of your spammy defaults. And yes, I *think* i disabled everything and unwatched the threads... twice now, but it didn't stick. We'll see if i ever post again.
Sorry it's confusing. The options are scattered. The one that might be getting you is the "get email notifications" found here:
That will prevent you from receiving email notifications from newly replied to threads.
I just create an gmail filter for all the forum stuff - neater
I have turned off email notifications as shown in the pic. Why am I still receiving an email notification every time?
Probably previously subscribed threads that retain the notification option that was selected when they were subscribed to. To change those you can follow directions mentioned at http://forums.macrumors.com/threads...-of-email-notification.1957328/#post-22589988
Thanks! Now if only that page had an option to select all threads at once to change.... mm. am i missing something?
I think if you don't select anything and just use the menu options from manage all threads to stop email notifications that should apply to all of them.
