constant automated e-mails from Micro Focus Community

How do I stop all these automated e-mails from Micro Focus Community?  Over the last few days I have been getting e-mails from forums in which I am not participating.  Even if I were interested, I would not want all these automated e-mails.  If I post a question, then I will go look for answers when I have the time. 

The e-mails say I can unsubscribe, but they only let me unsubscribe to one thread at a time!  It looks as though I will have to add Micro Focus to my junk e-mail list of senders to block!

Hi jb1,

I've experienced this too. I found that if you go top level of the forum there is a 'Turn Forum notifications off' button, just under the 'Popular Posts' section.

If you're not sure how to get to the forum you can follow the link in your email and in the navigation banner hit the 'More' button and select 'Forum'.  Or you might be able to edit the link in the email so it doesn't contain anything after '/forum'.

For example, community.microfocus.com/.../forum

Hope this helps,
Steven

I think it is easier to disable them by clicking on the X over the notification and confirming "Do not notify me when someone Replies are added to threads I'm subscribed to" or "Threads are started in forums I'm subscribed to".

There's another way to manage your subscriptions, you can click your profile icon, click settings and go to subscriptions. You can manage them all at once in there.

Thanks, Aisling. I just changed my settings, so I will wait to see if I get more of these messages.
