Tracked discussion filling up email inbox

by rogeroren / March 27, 2010 3:36 AM PDT

At 1:20am I got 6 emails about a WinXP tracked thread I did not join. At 5:59am I got 3 more, at 8:10 another, at 8:45 another, at 10:08 another, at 10:10 another, at 11:04 another, at 12:41pm another. I went to 'My tracked discussions' and found one thread, which I deleted. How do I prevent 'tracked discussions' from filling up my email inbox?

Mac OS 10.6.2, 'Mail' program, Firefox 3.6.2 viewing 'MacFixit' only, not 'WinXP' discussions.

If you opened your "My Tracked Discussions" listing, and the only entry was the discussion you mentioned in your post, then by deleting that you should not receiving tracking emails for that discussion in future.

Or perhaps I misunderstood your post?
