    1) User profile > Preferences

    2) Untick 'and receive email notifications of replies'.

    You can also untick 'automatically watch threads that you create or when you reply'. This means that if you add a post in a thread, you won't constantly get notifications whenever anybody adds anything to that thread. I find it's a pretty useful thing to untick :D

    3) There are more alert settings in User profile > Alert Preferences, if you want to disable notifications for specific things.

    Hope this helps!
