    It appears I have this option turned off, but keep getting emails for each post, reply, etc... Any idea how I can stop it? I always use the Alerts, almost never check my email!

    Go into your "Preferences". It is under the " Automatically watch threads that you create or when you reply..." There should be a check box "...and receive email notifications of replies." Uncheck that box and save.

    Yeah, those are unchecked yet I still get emails? Oh well! Maybe I should Unwatch stuff, and maybe set it again later?

    You could give that a try. Sometimes when you change setting, it can require a few hours for the system to update itself. Or you could try checking those boxes, waiting a few hours, then go uncheck them again.

    With those unchecked, you should not be receiving emails. A glitch which is beyond my abilities to intervene. :(

    I recently Unchecked everything about getting emails when posting and others posting and I still get the emails? Any ideas?

    Next time you post, look by the "Post Reply" button, there is one that shows "More Options". Click. Look under the Reply box and see if "Watch Thread" and the "Receive Emails" are unchecked.

    Beyond this and previous suggestion, I cannot think of more to try. :(

    Yeah, I guess it is broke :) Oh well! I mean I guess I would have to Turn Off Watch Threads? NO big deal! I'm over it now!
