    Default Help-suddenly I'm subscribed???

    I suddenly seem to have a number of subscribed threads, to many of which I get instant notifications. I've never subscribed to any threads, so something unexpected seems to have happened. Help!

    Then go to this page & look down the notification column on the 2nd right & select anything that has notification set to instant & then skid down the bottom of the page & changed selected items to No e-mail notification.

    Same thing happened to me Alex - I thought I must have had a brainfart when I started getting all these emails so I deleted the threads to which I'd magically subscribed but still a mystery.

    There was a forum wide default change, but I think it was reversed. Happened to me but I found a thread that discussed it and offered the solution.

    Thought for a monent there I was back in the 70's....

    After you changed the notification did you scroll to the bottom of that page and save the changes?
    Cheers

    Hi DJ,

    I did save the changes but the problem is every new thread I make a post in, it lists it as a subscription and defaults to instant notification.... this problem has only been happening since about 11pm Wednesday night.

    I have never subscribed to anything or set instant notification (to my knowledge)

    Thanks,

    Chipman

    And you reckon you've got a problem.

    I've been getting hundreds of emails a day bounced back to me from members who've subscribed but haven't updated their email addresses here since changing to a new one.

    I have turned the auto subscribe thing off. Thought it had already been done but 400 bounced emails this morning convinced me otherwise.

    Cheers - Neil
