    I never subscribed to any threads now in the last few days it seems like im getting emails saying i subscribed to a bunch of threads when all i did was post in them. These threads go way back too. How do I fix this? Its annoying and filling up my inbox!

    I have this problem as well, the last few days I've been getting slammed w/ emails for every thread I posted in when I did not hit subscribe.

    Ya same here... Go to settings, then view all subscribed threads and then hit empty current folder.

    Simply turn off the auto-subscribe feature:

    Look near the top of this page --> select 'Forum Actions' (under the BHW logo and the nav bar) --> select 'General Settings' --> Look for 'Default Thread Subscription Mode,' and select 'Do not subscribe'

    I thought I'd solved it by the method above, but I got flooded again.

    My fix was a rule in outlook on anything from support@blackhatworld.com with the text "You are subscribed to the thread " goes straight to deleted items. If you don't put the text line in you won't get PM notifications.

    My problem is, I *want* to be subscribed to the threads to read them online, just don't want the emails - but I've checked the "online only" box in my control panel several times and it does no good, I still get the emails.
