I see no way to stop project notifications for my language pairs.

I tried unchecking and saving and I got:

This language combination has been blocked by Admin.
For more information, contact support@stepes.com

Then added nea pair, and I got:

Phone Number is not verified

Then tried to add new number, but there was an error sending message!

There seems to be no way to simply uncheck notifications without all other checks carried out, and there seems no way either to delete or disable profile.

I wrote to their support, but no reply.

Profile settings Jun 7

Assuming that they are contacting you through your profile, go to your profile settings, then to 'Email preferences' and block their IP address (to do so, scroll down to 'Block lists').

Then write directly to their CEO, if any, ... Jun 7

... and demand that they stop sending notifications immediately.

I have emailed them Jun 7

To their available info and support emails; no reply. This is apparently a CSOFT company, and there appear to be many issues there: https://www.proz.com/blueboard/6569

Just mark as spam Jun 7

Does your e-mail provider allow you to mark these mails as spam, and/or does your e-mail program allow you do delete mails from them automatically?

I also have a specific agency that keeps sending me job notifications, but in order to update any of my information (or cancel notifications, or contact them at all) I have to agree to an updated NDA that I don't want to agree to, so I've just given up on getting them to listen, and now I always mark their mails as spam. Since I use Gmail, this will have a detrimental effect on their mails sent to other translators (Gmail "learns" this way), although that is not specifically intended by me. Gmail has since learnt that mails from that agency are spam, so I rarely see the notifications in my inbox anymore.
