by changing your Automatic Subscription off by checking "Do not subscribe." Going forward, you can turn it back on and all the new subscritions will follow your new instructions ... or you can pick and choose only threads that you want to follow (see more, below).
To stop the old notifications on all the threads you have subscribed to in the past ... the ones that were emailing you ....
delete all or your subscriptions and start over.
Then, if you wish to
to threads you post in, then turn it on again, and check "Subscribe with no notifications". This will provide you with a list of subscribed threads and the updates in your UserCP, but the system won't email you each time an update comes in.
Or, if you wish, you can check it for once a day or once a week email notification, which is more manageable and won't clutter your mailbox as much.
Or, you may
manually subscribe to specific threads
, as few or as many as you want. When you do this, you will be given an email choice for that particular thread ... no email, daily or weekly emails. You do this by going into the thread you want and using the "Thread Tools" drop down menu (it's on the right on the nav bar right above the top post.) and click on "Subscribe to this thread".
To stop old Subscriptions from emailing you:
In your Control Panel, left pane under "Subscribed Threads", click "List Subscriptions"
In the new window that opens, at the far right you'll see a "Notifications" column which will show you how each thread notifies you and a column of checkboxes. Checking the box at the top of the column will select ALL subscribed threads.
At the bottom right, there is a drop down menu box "Selected Threads: "
Click the arrow to make the options appear, and under "Update Subscriptions", select "No email notification", then click "Go".
This will reset the notifications for all selected threads to stop emailing you. If you have more than one page of subscriptions you will have to do this on each page.
