Gp to user CP, under the recent activity on subscribed threads, there is a button that says "View all subscribed threads" Click on it and it show every thread you have ever subscribed to by posting in it. There is a check box next to each one, check the ones you want to delete (or the check box at the top to mark the whole page. Then at the bottom of the page there is a drop down menu which shows "Move to folder". Click on the menu to activate it and then click on delete. They quickly disappear.

I did that I eliminated 1 page but I have 150 pages to delete. Dos that mean I have to go page by page 150 times?

I get quite a few emails (not as many as you!), and I enjoy getting them. However I prefer to keep my Discuss Cooking emails to two types rather than three. I get emails telling me when I get a PM and when a post has been reported. If I got the subscription emails as well, I might miss something important.

How do you have time to read 3,000 emails every day?!

You're not missing anything GRK! I am a moderator, so I get an extra one that regular members do not get. I only brought it up because that is one reason I don't want a lot of DC emails--it might make me miss something important.
