I'm getting blasted with phpbb e-mails

Post by zippy »

I just joined and now have received over 100 welcome messages. They are sent out every 5 minutes. What to do?
Thanks,

Check the emails and make sure that they are also Welcome emails, and not just a bunch of emails letting you know someone replied to a topic you posted in(that feature is enabled by default here). if that's the case just go to the UCP under preferences and turn it off.

Thanks Magnotta, they are all the same as I posted. Same subject, content and headers. They come every 5 minutes.

Alright, No need for the excessive posting.

As for the emails, this is a development board. Errors are expected
...they're watching you...
