    I turned off the e-mail notification, for when someone replies to a post. but I keep getting them = lots of e-mails to delete = pita.

    how can I turn them off ? I don't always remember to unclick the button at the bottom here in this window.

    Just click on the "Unwatch thread" (upper right side of the page) and you never get an email for them again. Once you post a comment it becomes watched again though..............

    Click on the little icon at the top right of the forum on your avatar then click "privacy" then unclick "receive news and email updates" and hit save.

    You'll never get an email alert again.

    No, I want to get notifications, but I've tried everything and I just don't get them.

    ok. "news" would be from admin ? and "email updates" is when someone replies to a thread that I am watching/etc ?

    I mean email notifications. Sorry. I get notifications here, but not emails telling me about them. I have tried absolutely everything as a computer professional with 20 years experience with forum software, including the rather high end package that this site runs on,

    So at the top right, when you HOVER on your screen name, then click on "Preferences", do you see this?

    Make sure that 2nd box isn't checked.

    in the actual email, at the very bottom there should be an unsubscribe link.
    if it's there, click it.

    Only thing I can think of is to go directly to those threads, unwatch them, then watch them, and click the notification that says without sending an email.
