My shared email address is on my Mumsnet account. Until just now I had no idea that if someone mentioned you on a thread, you get sent an email linking to that thread!

How can I turn this option off?
Or how can I delete my comment on a thread?
Thank you!

That’ll teach me to slag off DH on a chat thread.....! confused

There's a mnhq night watch board (on the drop down menu) which might get you a faster response.

Thank you. I reported my offending post after starting this thread as I didn’t want the hassle of setting up a new email, but then I was worried in case anything happened to be sent to our email overnight so I thought sod it, just change the email address and then it’s sorted.

Go into Customise, scroll down to the bottom and there are two check boxes to turn off email notifications.

To turn email notifications off, follow Fru's instructions. We've replied to your report now and if there's anything else, give us a shout. flowers

Thank you so much!
I searched everywhere for the option but couldn’t find it! I’ll try it now.
Thanks so much x

Yes, thanks for that Lornamumsnet...

Sending to my old email address the actual post I asked to be deleted, when the whole reason I reported it was so that nothing to do with the post could be sent to my old email address.....

Emilyfarnsbarns Mon 09-Oct-17 13:32:20

Please don’t email me again!!!!

The Night Watch can't do anything about changing email addresses.

And, Emily, your report will probably have shown your old email address - it's quite possible that 'the system' hasn't necessarily caught up yet, hence Lorna replying to the only email MNHQ had for you at the time.

Additionally, when I changed my email address a couple of years ago (after JeffGate) I had to jump through a few hoops to prove to MNHQ I was 'me', IYSWIM? So it might not be a rapid process.
