    Still getting emails by the dozen

    I {thought} I changed my notification settings to NOT get any email updates but I still get a bunch each day. Am I missing something in the profile settings?
    I unchecked everything so I dont clog up my measly little I-Phone..
    Thanks, E-man
    I got nothing for now

    It ignores me when I tell them I don't want emails....................I dont' get them because I dont' "subscribe" to any threads...........but o.com keeps sending me crap from the main site

    I have discussed religion and politics over morning coffee with men who have killed people, you don't scare me.

    If you're getting notifications about replies to posts you need to unsubscribe from them in your CP. If you're getting emails from the main site (IE not related to threads you're subscribed to) an admin probably needs to help.

    I still get the same emails after I have UNCHECKED every notification possible.

    The forum is really ticking me off in many ways lately............I am about done with dealing with them...................time to find another place to play

    OK, I asked and this is the answer I got:

    If they go to their main profile page (from the website not the forums) they can manage all their subscriptions. Just have them, logged in, go to the home page for Officer.com; find the "button" at the top with their email address in it and click on it. That will take them to their profile page and they can adjust whatever they want from there.

    When you click on the orange button that has your email inside it, it takes you to a page where there is a gray bar that says: Edit Profile Newsletter Settings
    Click on the words "Newsletter Settings" and check the "NO" boxes. Then click on "Save Profile" at the bottom.

    I just tried it today, so I will watch to see if the emails stop for me.

    I got one more, which may have already been sent before I opted out. I just did the opt out link at the bottom of that email. I haven't gotten any today.

    Anytime I opt out of emails (like the stuff I started getting from Best Buy!) It has always taken a few days before it stops completely.

    Well, I am still getting updates and stuff from O.com I'm almost ready to just delete my profile here. Its getting frustrating. I know it's a free service and I'm happy to have been here 7+ years but emails are a PITA. I've opted out from the bottoms, Ive updated and re clicked on NO each and every one but still getting 2-3 a day. I guess I'll just deal with it!!!

    I stopped getting them when I did what I mentioned in my above post, at the main page.

    I looked you up and made a change on "allow emails from admin". Let me know if that helps.
