    Ya, email notifications are great for that new user or for that most important questions you are dying for an answer to. But as a user becomes more tenured and their post count starts to climb there comes a point when email notifications can become overburden. Here we will try to help you understand how these work and how to set it to your liking.

    Default settings:
    By default, the site is set up to "watch" each thread a user post or replies to.
    By default, the site will send an email for all replies to those watch threads. This is however limited to 1 email per thread between each login.

    There are 2 steps required to stop emails:
    1. Disable future emails sent by default.
    2. Remove past "Watched" thread email notifications.
    STEP 1:
    Disabling emails notifications by default:
    This option alone will stop future "watched" threads from sending emails.
    • Go to your USER PROFILE PAGE
    • Click on PREFERENCES.
    • (or click here)
    • Uncheck AND RECEIVE EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS.......

    STEP 2:
    Removing current watched email notifications.
    This option will remove email notifications from past "watched" threads.
    • Click FORUMS or RECENT POST in the navigation bar.
    • Click WATCHED THREADS in the sub navigation bar.
    • Scroll down to bottom of list and click SHOW ALL WATCHED THREADS
    • (or click here)
    • Next above the thread list on the right click MANAGE WATCHED THREADS.
    • Click DISABLE EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS and SAVE CHANGES

    How to selectively received email notifications:
    Now that you have updated your email notifications it is important to know how to selectively re-apply it so you can receive a reply notification via email on your most important topics.
    • In the thread, Select WATCH THREAD in the upper right of the thread.
    • Then click AND RECEIVE EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS then WATCH THREAD!
    • NOTE: If it says UNWATCH THREAD, click that first as you will need to remove your current watch settings before you can apply the new one.

    If you have any questions please post below.
    If you see an error or this is not workling please post below.
    Thanks.

    I wish I had known about removing past "watched" threads.
    I did most of the above steps because my email was getting to be too much.
    I 'unwatched" threads as I found them. It has taken 3-4 months to get them all to stop.

    I like the "watch thread" feature if I have questions and I'm waiting around hoping someone has a solution, but I comment way too much to receive and email on every thread I reply to.

    I get them for each new topic I post to, even though I have my preferences set to Subscribe, but not receive email notifications.

    I can do this for your.. But I would like one of you to do it so I knwo it works for you too.

    After setting defaults you need to turn off past request.

    Step 2.
    • .........
    • or click here
    • Next above the thread list on the right click MANAGE WATCHED THREADS.
    • Click DISABLE EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS and SAVE CHANGES

    I do that about once a week. I even click each individually, get ride of the ones I don't want to watch anymore, then click the ones that are remaining and select the option to stop receiving email notifications. That usually works fine. But, each time I post to a new thread I get email notifications from that thread until I manually get rid of them.

    @AKRider, made the changes for you also.
    I would like to know if the email's stop or not in a day or so.
    Thanks.

    @drfubar. Same thing, I'll do yours now.

    I had to go into Tapatalk and turn them off. Mine weren't coming from Hondasxs.

    See who sent the email and go from there.

    I didn't even think to check there. I turned all those off. Hopefully that fixes it. Thanks @joeymt33!
