I keep getting SPAM email notifications from Forum

I've checked all my settings but everytime anyone comments on any question, I get an email.

It's freaking annoying and making me consider marking the email as Spam

You can change the settings in your Profile --> Manage Email Notifications

Tried that, it only shows my questions there, but I still receive every single email and notification

Strange as there is no such option.

Check out also Profile --> Edit preferences --> Email Notification Preferences

if you have not already done so.

Yeah tried that. Went through every option under User Preferences.

I'm just going to change my email address to a fake email address.

Helluva frustrating, but seems to be a bug in the website.

Oh and you can't change your email address in your profile settings as it's locked.

So looks like Qlikview will now be regarded as SPAM in my inbox.

Pretty piss poor

Hi, Justin

Apparently, the email is you "key identifier" it can only be changed by QlikTech / Moderators.

You can ask that to Sara Leslie : http://community.qlik.com/people/sli

You probably received the messages from your post or groups.

Since you tried the user preferences, I suggest you check your groups. On the menu on the right, you may find a 'Stop email notifications' button.

Hope it helps,

Erich

Re: I keep getting SPAM email notifications from Forum

Hello Justin,

It sounds like you have opted into receive email updates in a sub community. We send out a weekly digest on Thursdays but all other email updates are 'opt-in'. Here are the examples and how to deal with them.

You are receiving emails from a sub-community ie Development. Go to that community page and on the right hand side under Actions/Notifications you will see either Receive email notifications OR Stop email notifications. Just click on Stop email notifications.

You would also receive email notifications when anyone comments on a thread or document you created so that you have the opportunity to respond to them. That is a built in function. If you feel that your thread or document doesn't need any more responses you can feel free to 'lock' it (found on that content items page under the Action menu).

Let me know if this takes care of the issue and thanks for posting your concern.
