Why do I receive emails after I made a post on Nabble? How to stop it?

If you find yourself receiving many emails (not spam, just regular emails) after making a post on Nabble, don't worry, it can be easily fixed.

What happened is that your were probably posting through Nabble to a "mailing list", also known as the email discussion group, and it requires that you become a subscriber before you can post. You probably remember seeing the prompt to subscribe. You have to do that in order for your post to go out, but as a result, you subscribed and that is why you are receiving the emails. You should also have received an automatic email from Nabble with a link that you can click to stop receiving emails. If you missed that email or don't remember, continue reading.

How to stop it?

  1. Go to the forum where you posted a message.
    If you remember where you posted, go there directly. If you don't, try to find your post first, then go up one level to the forum level. Or, you can search Nabble by the email address of the mailing list. You can find the email address by looking for the "to:" field in those unwanted emails that you received from the mailing list.

  2. Click the "mailing list options" link.
    In the subsequent page you will find options to turn off email delievery or simply unsubscribe. Follow through the instructions there.
