    On the taskbar near top of page, hover over your user name. There's a dropdown menu that contains 'alert preferences'. You can change things in there.

    Or if you just want to stop the notices for one particular thread only, go to that thread, click "unwatch thread" in the upper right corner.

    or, heck, just put it in your SPAM (junk) folder, and should filter the email from there.....

    Actually I believe you stop the email notifications under the plain old "Preferences" tab....not the "Alert Preferences"

    I'm having the opposite problem. I don't get emails when i want them. All my preferences are set to send email, but I don't get them.

    I think if you ignore an alert for that thread you no longer get emails for that thread. Good thing too, gmail would be mad at me. ;lol

    yes but then when I sign on to the site do you get the red alert at the top of the page if someone posts on that thread?
