Stop sending me email

I keep getting email from here about 'subscribed' threads replies, even though I have it turned off. Can someone fix it so I stop getting spammed with reply emails, please.

Turning off the preference only turns it off for new threads you subscribe to. Any you had subscribed to before you turned off the preference still have the "send email" associated with those original subscriptions. The only way to turn those off is to open the specific threads and on each change the thread options.

Or click on 'subscribed threads' under the 'quick links' menu, tick the box for all threads you want to unsubscribe from, and click on remove or whatever it is!

Or under your own My LQ > Edit Options you can set your Subscribed Threads to "No Email Notification"

Or don't subscribe to any by default and yes, an easier way is to go back to My LQ and under List Subscriptions, select them all and set the notification to "No Email Notifications" from their previous default.
