email notification of replies to threads

I have checked and I have not 'ticked' the box re getting an email to tell me when someone has replied on a thread where I have contributed... BUT....

My inbox is getting STUFFED with emails telling me that someone has posted on a thread... AAARGH - almost 60 emails in 3 days is too many.
What can I do to ensure that I do not get these emails?

I like getting the e-mail when someone posts to something I posted to, but I have been getting them 2-3 times rather than just once. I did not say anything as I thought perhaps it was just a slight burp in the new system, if it continues after now, MJ I will let you know.

Just one more thing whilst you're in the mood, MJ....8-)

That 'tick' thing at the side of threads. When I start one, I don't rate it with any 'tick' but the tick turns up. I've tried to get rid of it, but I'm technically-challenged at the best of times.... how do I do it?!

Hmmmm, having clicked on that 'tick' in the ratings area of my first post in the thread, it says I have 'subscribed' to the thread... I have done no such thing!!! (Or if I have, how do I make sure I don't 'subscribe' when opening any new thread?)

Hi Ishbel.

I'm happy to help you. Does the "tick" thing look like this?-->

If thats what you mean, I can't remove that. It's just a reminder that you posted in that thread.:)

No - it is in the same 'box' as the thread title - to the right and under the word 'rating'.... Interestingly, it is not on this thread now - but I did go and play with the ratings thingmy in the options for personal settings! Maybe I've managed to remove it from 'new' threads, but it is certainly still there on threads I either started or replied to at an earlier stage!

Maybe I've managed to remove it from new threads.. I'll have to wait and see.

Thanks for your assistance.8-)

Go into the user cp, edit options, and scroll down to Default Thread Subscription Mode, then click the arrow and put it to do not subscribe. I had to do that when I started posting again. I think there's a send no email also which would probably work. I haven't tried that one.
