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.

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.

After setting defaults you need to turn off past request.

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.

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!
