    Every time someone replies to a conversation that I'm having, I get an email. I realize this is to inform you of new messages, but I check the site on a daily basis so this is not needed. I looked through the profile and alert/contact settings, but I cant seem to see anyway to turn the email notification off.

    Help?

    Look for the checkbox that says "Receive email when a new conversation message is received"

    I had to go digging for it too. I wish there would be a choice to get an email when someone starts the conversation, but not every time someone replies.

    Thx!

    It's hidden. I did a post a while back, hope it's being archived into a user guide, tracking down the different locations for alerts and e-mails.

    The problem is that I want to be able to opt in for email notification for a new conversation, but if 5 others are invited into the conversation and I'm not actually interested in it, there's not a way for me to opt out of that conversation only. Instead, I get an email for every response from everyone else involved.

    it's about the same as regular e-mails- if someone replies and adds three more people to the c.c. list, and then they reply, you get the e-mails. We don't have a b.c.c. feature in conversations, although that could be interesting (but it would lose transparency, creating greater problems).

    It's really no different than PM notifications on FT (or any other vB forum). As long as you're listed as a recipient, you'll get the email notification of a new PM, whether you want to or not.

    I suppose the main difference might be that Conversations here seem to be used more than PMs were on FT, leading to more email notices...maybe?
