It has come to my attention that the default setting for new members registering for the site is to receive an email each time a PM is sent to you. This has been changed, now, so that the default is to not receive those emails. However, for those of you already registered the setting will not be automatically changed. If would like to stop receiving those emails, for every PM, please take the following steps:

  • Click the "Settings" link in the top right corner of the site.
  • On the left hand side, you should fine "My Settings -> My Account -> General Settings". Click on General Settings.
  • Now look on the page for "Messaging and Notification -> Private Messaging -> Email Notification of New Private Messages". Change this setting to 'Don't receive Email Notification of new Private Messages'.
  • Click "Save Changes" at the bottom of the page.

Now you will no longer receive an email every time someone sends you a new private message.
But, just a reminder. If you are in a group break that has a draft, leaving it turned on is a good idea.
