Default emails from CAF

I am happy to log into my account and see my updates only here. How do I prevent any updates being emailed to me?

Pretty simple really. After you log in, go to "profile". From the drop down menu, select "my subscribed threads". Any thread you initiate or answer will be on that list until you remove it. On the right of each thread is a box. It will say daily unless you change it. That means that you will get a daily update from all those threads. Check the box next to each one you do not want to have email updates, then scroll down to the box below that says "move to folder". Click to get another dropdown menu. When I want to delete the thread I have subscribed to there is an option to delete. Otherwise you can select that you do not want email notification. Click on what you want to do with the threads you selected by putting a check in their box, then click "go". You will have to do this twice if you both want to delete some threads and stop email notification. Took me a while to figure this out because I did not know what the "move to folder" meant.

I wish there was simply an option of not receiving email notifications. I have a shared computer, so don't need to have our emails cluttered with those. Oh well.

I do not receive any email notifications for anything here - I am sure it's somewhere under My Account- but never do I get emails, even for threads I start. I have not changed settings in years.

When you post on a thread, underneath the text box is a section called additional opinions. There is a drop down menu with an option of no email notification. You can also choose weekly, daily, instant email notification or no subscription. You can do this while posting or editing.

For threads you are already receiving emails from Ohana's method works.

Default Re: emails from CAF

To set the default for future thread subscriptions, go to Profile->Control Panel->Edit Options.

The second section is called "Messaging and Notification". There is a list of things that might send you email. Untick the boxes if you don't wish to receive notifications from admins, other members, friend requests. Then you will see "Default thread subscription mode". Change this to "Do not subscribe" or "No email notification".

I find it useful to keep subscribing to threads I post in, because then I can follow them simply by clicking the "Profile" link and seeing what is unread. However, after a few years here on CAF, I now have almost 900 threads subscribed. All but a dozen are silent, but I have a handy list of threads I have participated in, so I can jog my memory without really having to use the "Search" function. I always have the option of visiting Profile->Subscribed Threads and updating them or dropping them, en masse.

Your mileage may vary.
