I dont seem able to stop all the emails coming to me from threads I joined 3 years ago. I don't want to close my account as I get job alerts, or at least I've registered for them, but never get any. How do I leave conversations that no longer apply?
It’s Megan here from Macmillan’s Online Community team. Thank you for posting your question, I hope the following information is provides the answers you are looking for.
You mentioned that you’d like to stop receiving emails from threads you joined 3 years ago. We can turn off all your notifications from the site if you would like us to do this, however, I’d like to explain how you can also manage your notification settings.
You can manage email notifications and live alerts in your settings by going to your profile and clicking the ‘settings’ button after clicking your profile picture. I’ve added an image below to help explain.
When you click the ‘settings’ button, you will be taken to the page shown below. Here you can turn off all email notifications by unticking the ‘enable email’ boxes.
If you would like to manage your email and live notifications, you need to click on the ‘notifications’ tab circled in the image above. When you click this, you will see a list of options. On the right-hand side there will be boxes ticked or unticked for email and live alert. You can change these preferences to suit you. Just to explain, ‘live alerts’ is the notifications you will received when logged into your Online Community account.
I hope this helps and if you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to reply or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re here to help members use the site and find the support they are looking for, so if there’s anything else we can do to help, just let us know.
