Originally from ticket #6066.
I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but I'm receiving an email every time one of my classmates post on the discussion board on Moodle. Please let me know if there is a way to turn this off.
After you have logged into Moodle, check the Left Hand Side for a block called "Settings", click to Expand "My Profile Setting" and select "Messaging" preference. Here you can turn on or off any messaging alerts you wish to get or remove.
If you scroll down the options you should see a section for "Forum" or "Advanced Forum". If you wish to remove any email notification, please uncheck the box under the "Email" column.
