    Don't like filling my inbox with notices from this forum when somebody posts to something I've commented on. Is there a way to shut this off?

    'Quick Links', 'Subscribed Threads', then empty/delete either selected threads or select the 'All' option.

    Thats one way Tim, but every-time he re subscribes he'll get the emails again.

    To actually prevent it happening go to User Cp (control panel) - Edit options - Default thread subscription mode - No Email notification.

    Is this setting in the app, or web version? I don't see it in the app settings.

    Found it on the web version. I often get con fussed when I read how to do something because I use the app not the web for this forum. Guess I assume if you have an iPad you must be using the app. Why don't they work the same way?

    I had 'email notifications' to my Yahoo address setup from the start and wanted that option turned off, so I did the above in the 'Edit Options' category of my CP.

    Well, I'm still receiving a bunch of iPad notifications in my Yahoo folder daily - is their something else to do? Thanks - :)

    You may have to do what Tim suggested as well to remove your current subscriptions. Any future subscriptions won't email you now.

    Thanks for the suggestion! I did go to my 'subscriptions list' via the Quick Links route - some were listed as 'no mail notification' (i.e. my recent responses) and many others were still 'daily notification', obviously the ones before I edited my options; however, each subscription can be checked (far right) and then w/ a menu selection at the bottom of the list altered (e.g. deleted, no mail notification, or several other choices). :)
