    Default Why do I still get e-mail notifications?

    Through the User CP I indicated I do not want e-mail notifications. I still get some. Could you please remedy that for me? Or do you prefer me to block SRP as a sender in Outlook Express?
    The funny thing is I found 2 notifications this morning while the User CP indicated I have 4 subscribed threads with new posts.

    What setting did you choose for your "Default Thread Subscription Mode" in your usercp?
    Code:
    When you post a new thread, or reply to a topic, 
    you can choose to automatically add that thread 
    to your list of subscribed threads, with the option 
    to receive email notification of new replies to that 
    thread.
    Choices: Do not subscribe
             No email notification
             Instant email notification
             Daily email notification
             Weekly email notification
    If you chose "No email notification" then you are still automatically subscribed to all threads you either start or reply to. You'll see the list grows endlessly....

    When you view your list of subscribed threads are they all set to "none" in the "Notification" column? If not, change the ones set otherwise to None and that should stop the emails.

    Personally, I almost never use the subscription feature on this forum so I have my default set to "Do not subscribe"? If you feel the same, you could delete all your existing subscriptions, set your default to do not subscribe, and see if that solves your problem. (I still occasionally subscribe to a particular thread... I just use the thread tools pull-down while viewing the thread.)

    As to why you received emails even though your default is no emails, I can only guess that you inadvertently clicked an icon somewhere that activated email notification on those particular threads.

    Hello Joe,

    The Default Thread Subscription Mode has "no e-mail notification" on.

    As you said above: in my list of subscribed threads some have "none" and some have "daily" in the notification column.
    The ones with "daily" I had been subscribed to before I changed the Default Thread Subscription Mode.

    So that's the problem.

    I like the subscription feature. When I visit SRP I 1st go to User CP and check whether I have replies. If and when I have time left I check for new posts and threads.

    Thanks!!

    BTW SRP has for me been a great source of information re. the honing and stropping difficulties I had in the past! I now visit it and contribute to it out of interest.

    Sounds like you need to delete your subscriptions.

    Mparker762,

    Changing the notification feature of the DTSM does not change the e-mail notification of the existent subscriptions, only of the subsequently added subscriptions. I like the subscription feature as it enables me to check replies.
