I keep getting unwanted emails with regard to topics posted on this forum. However, I did not mark "track topic" nor did I mark "track all topics". How do I turn off this feature?

1. Go to the Forums page:

http://www.proz.com/?sp=bb/new&action=Overview

here, on the right-hand side, you should see combo boxes to the right of each forum, which can be toggled between "Topics", "Posts" and "Off". Set them to Off.

2. Go to the individual forum, and in the "Your Email Tracking" box (top right) uncheck "New topics" and "All posts" and click "Update".

3. Go to the individual thread within a forum, and in the "Your Email Tracking" box (top right) uncheck "All posts" and click "Update".

I assume there is some overlap between these 3 settings, but as I don't know which overrides which (maybe ProZ staff could tell), I'd go through all 3 of them (for the topics/forums concerned) to make sure.

All this assumes, of course, that the settings work as they should...

Regards
Endre

Turned off your tracking for this forum Sep 1, 2003

Williamson,

I turned off your tracking of posts to this forum. In the future, you can do this yourself by going to the main page for the forum you are tracking (in this case, http://www.proz.com/forum/54 ), and editing "Your Email Tracking" options in the upper right of the page.

Hope this helps.
