Many users like to use email to keep track of what is going on at the Ketogenic Forums. There are two ways to do this, one is to make the server send you notifications of activity related to your account, the other is to use "Mailing list mode".
You can change these settings from the preferences icon in your user drop down menu.
Mailing list mode allows you to select one of three options:
- Send daily updates.
This just sends one single mail per day. It may be a bit large, but still only one single mail.
- Send me an email for every new post (up to 8 per day).
- Send me a new email for every new post except my own.
So, how do you reduce the number of emails? Simple: either use option 1. above, or mute the categories which aren't of interest to you.
As well as the mailing list mode, have a look at the section of your preferences dealing with email notifications, it looks like this.:
I would select "Unless previously sent" and enable:
* Send me an email when someone messages me.
If you HAVEN'T
enabled Mailing list mode, then also enable
* Send me an email when someone quotes me, replies to my post, mentions my @username
or invites me to a topic.
(otherwise this could double how many mails you get!)
