View Full Version : New forum Q&As and duplicate email notifications

16 Aug 2011, 1:00 PM
I really like the new answered/unanswered Q&A forums. However, I found that when someone replied to my post, I got both an email that someone had replied to my thread AND a PM that someone replied to my question (which then sent a second email to me). I'd like to be able to turn off PMs since I already get emails every time anyone replies to any thread I've posted on. It's just extra spam and clutter. Thanks.

Maybe this could help - in "general settings" of "My settings" category you can choose the needed means of notification turning on the button "private messaging off".
You can even look down of your answer for removing the tick on the notification settings for this post.

Unfortunately, that would prevent me from receiving regular private messages (or notification of PMs by email) from users, which I do from time to time.

Sounds reasonable. I'll look into it. I'm glad to hear the Q&A forums seem helpful.
