I was posting in the forums, as normal, and I looked and noticed off to the right there was an option to turn on email notifications in the Actions panel. .I turned it on, and 5 minutes later my inbox started getting flooded with notifications to EVERY post on the site. So I went back and tried turning it back off, but that IS NOT WORKING and my inbox is getting overwhelmed - Can Someone please help me!
I really though it meant to turn on notifications for JUST the one thread!
That's not quite enough all that does is stop reference to post you've posted to and replies you have created.
In addition they must go to each forum they have visted and check to see if stop email notifications is available if so they are to click on it.
If there is instead start email notifications then they are not to touch it.
As it stands now you have turn off that you don't want nofications, that you no longer want to subscribe to threads you have read or created, and at each forum level you have visted (acrobat, forum discusssion, etc) and turn off there. Unless you turn off all three you will be plagued with email Notifications.
Anytime I venture into a new forum if I make a post , either a question or make a reply I know to unsuscribe email notifications in each place or I will always get some notices.
That is not the problem because I am getting notifications from posts other than ones I creted or subscribed - these are posts I have never visited!
It seems to be a bug in the Forum itself.
Go to those forums at top level example:
|Please enter a title.|
|You can not post a blank message. Please type your message and try again.|
I reworded the FAQ so it now has a numbered list of steps. If you are unable to make the emails stop using the FAQ, please provide the folowing information:
Which forum are the messages coming from?
Looking at your profile, you are sunbscribed to 27 threads and 1 forum. Unfortunately, it doesn't tell me which forum you are subscribed to.
I can cancel ALL of your subscriptions (threads and forum). Or you can go to the particular forum you are subscribed to and turn it off. Let me know if you want me to cancel all of your subscriptions.
Please cancel all my subscriptions - I tried everything laid out above and I'm still getting flooded!
Oh wait, the problem seems to be fixed.... sorry, my email software was backed up from before.... I will let you know by Sunday 6.20 if there is still a problem
It looks like you found the right switch. I don't see any forum subscriptions listed, but all your thread subscriptions are still there.
