Emails

Post by racechick »

After about 7 years on this forum, suddenly I'm getting emails when anyone replies to my post. Which is really sweet, except my emails are barely under control at the best of times ( eh Stonemonkey :hehe: ) now they are in complete meltdown . I have no chance whatsoever of getting on top of emails and finding the one amongst the hundreds that may be important.
Anyone remember me mentioning ' Afro Introductions' , they're still desperate to find me a partner despite me never ever having contacted them or replied to any emails. Amazon love to tell me what I want to buy. I get emails from a union I used to belong to, vistaprint love me, ebay are pretty keen, lots of holiday places like a friendly chat, Grand Prix legends are in on the act, a few bloggers and a whole host of people I have no idea who they are.
Anyway, why forumula1 has decided to get up close and personal on the email front, I' m not quite sure. Does anyone else get this? Is it a new thing? Or have I had finger trouble again? More importantly, is there anyway I can stop it happening and gain a modicum of control over my email life?

I have more than 1 email address. One for humans and one for websites.

I can imagine the mess I'd be in with two emails. I have various things I've joined up to and forgotten the name and password Ive given, then if you try to join again ,you can't , it becomes a mess. BI'm trying to become slimline re joining things.
So do you guys emails form here? Can I stop them coming?

Have you got anything in the list in 'manage subscriptions' in your user control panel?

Lol I can just imagine the mess I'd get in with two email addresses. I tend to join things, forget my user name, forget my password and then when I try to join if again, because I've forgotten I'm joined already and what I'm called and stuff like that, it doesn't let me join. So I think I'm better sticking with one .
do you guys get emails from here?

YES! in that place it says I'm not subscribed to any forums but there's a whole lot of topics I'm subscribed to and can click a button and unsubscribe .......each one. If I do that will it stop the emails? Because emails aren't mentioned, just subscriptions. It won't stop me getting on the topics on here will it.?

Are the topics listed there the ones you get email notifications about?

I've not used it so don't know how it works but I think removing them from that list will just stop the notifications. wont stop you from seeing anything on the forum

I didn't even know it was there, this facility to get emails. It must have got turned on by accident. This is what the emails say..

I think I should just go and click them all in that ' manage subscription' place do you? I was just worried it would stop me getting on to those topics, like I was unsubscribing from ever seeing them on here.

RC. The email seems to tell you all you need to know.

Strongbow! Yummy! I'm way too sober, due to early start tomorrow morning. 4 am.

Yes you would think it tells me everything but I don't know what I'm un subscribing from? The forum?
Why doesn't it say, do you want go stop gettng emails? I'm off to press those buttons anyway. If I never ever come on here again, you'll know it's all gone wrong,
