Get alerts but not emails?

Discussion in 'Help and HOWTOs' started by AssassinDreams, Feb 3, 2016.

  1. So I've been perusing my settings and the forum but can't find a way to keep alerts on threads without getting e-mailed about it every damn time. I've unchecked each box in preferences that say to email me, but I'm still getting a new email for every alert and its quickly clogging up my inbox.

    Am I completely blind and missing something?

    Did you get one for this? (This is a test)

    I'm not sure if that worked. Can you confirm if you are still receiving emails?

    Your lack of response tells me that you must not be receiving any more emails - which means success! :) I will post 26 more responses just to be sure however.

    Just 25 to go. This is going really well I think.

    Success seems to be upon us. I think that I fixed your issues although I'm not completely sure what I did besides reboot my iPhone.

    BTW

    I have the same setting as you have describe however I still receive emails. Perhaps mine does not work the same as yours as you are obviously no longer receiving anything since my iPhone reboot.

    I've been looking at the settings again. Have you unchecked these settings? ;)

    @Sporkdom ,

    I fixed Assassinmydream's issue by cycling my iPhone which is what the Apple lady told me to do when the app buttons were screwing up. This seems to be a secret fix-all for every IT issue.

    Hey man! That's awesome! I wonder if this works for Android too? I may have to check my settings and see....

    I am declaring this a success as @AssassinDreams is completely in the dark to this thread now. I will post 16 more responses just to be sure.

    Are you sure? I can reboot my phone again and send some more tests.
  18. Delayed emails, at least.

    I could turn off alerts, but don't want to. I just want to not get 5 emails a day..but I see you're intent on me turning them off completely. :/

    Perhaps you could just delete your email account?

    I posted a msg on your profile to test there as well. I'm thinking that we need to do some load testing. I'm wondering if @Tibal could write a script for this? Input is welcome.
