    I have unchecked "Receive email when a new conversation message is received" on the contacts detail page.

    And I have unchecked the "and receive email notifications of replies" on the preference page.

    But I am still receiving email alerts. Is there another tick somewhere?

    Is this happening for new posts or just old posts. If it's an old post, you have to unwatch it manually if you had email alerts enabled when you originally posted.

    I sure hope not. I do not want to unwatch those threads. I just don't want an email alert. Do I have to untick "Receive site mailings" under contact details page too?

    I changed my account to not receive email alerts and it's working for me. I still receive alerts for threads I posted on before the change.
    I didn't.

    Surely, it wouldn't be set up that way.

    Enter a false e-mail address at AAC or mark everything from this site as, "spam" in your e-mail program.

    What if later he changes his mind? Could that condition be truly reverted?

    That's odd that you continue to receive emails. I suppose it's worth unticking that box too. Please keep me updated if that fixes things.

    Absolutely. I will want to resume email alerts. Just want to turn it off temporarily.

    I'm having some operator (me) problems with ignorance of my email program.

    jrap, I changed that 3rd tick (logged out and back in) several hours ago and am still receiving email alerts.
    And sorry to report, for several hours earlier, was not getting alerts here while online, but still getting email alerts.

    BUT I seem to be getting site alerts again now.

    Are you joking? When a person enters data into a computer, he just proved that he has access to that information and he has access to where to enter it. Whenever a person enters information into a computer, he can enter different information at a later time. At least that's how my computer works.

    Mine too, No. 12.

    More than joking, I am having in mind one of the forums where I participate. No matter how many times I delete it, a link to my old website is still shown in my profile. I have control of what data I enter. What the other side does, is not under my control. The core of my concern is that.

    I see. You have gone to a website that refuses to allow you to delete an old address or link.
    That's why one of my suggestions was, "enter a false address".
    Every bit of input you provide can be sold. Website programmers don't want to lose any data, even if it's wrong.
    What's the worst that can happen? People keep clicking on an address that doesn't work?
