    Hi, I have for the last hour been getting emails every minute for subscribed threads. I have never had these before and I never turned them on.
    I have turned them off as far as I can see in settings, but they still keep coming.

    How to I stop the emails?

    Same thing, I just changed my password thought someone logged into my account and did this but it seems not to have helped in the matter.

    This is very annoying. I tried to change the settings and it does nothing.

    Me, too. Doesn't seem like you can turn it off either.

    What did you guys expect from a forum learning how to spam, and you thought it could never happen to yourself? :D

    Lol, I'm pretty sure it's supposed to do that, as we automatically subscribe to any threads we post in.

    This is just the first time it's actually worked on BHW, so we got them all in one go.

    Maybe W130SN pointed out right.

    I kept getting emails every second maybe for an hour, my iPad kept "Ding" "Ding" "Ding"

    I just hope it doesn't happen tomorrow because I just saw I have thousands plus threads subscribed to.

    Step 1: Go to Settings -> General Settings and set "Default Thread Subscription Mode" to "Do not subscribe".
    Step 2: Go to Settings -> Subscriptions and delete all unwanted subscriptions. I deleted all of them.
