    We just enabled a new feature allowing you to receive emails when another member tags you, but it requires you to opt-in if you want to receive them. To opt in, go to Contact Details, either by clicking here or in the account menu:

    Then check "Receive email when mentioned" and click save!

    With that checked, you will receive a notification email whenever someone tags you.

    **Warning**
    DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVE OCD!



    How will this affect my other 36,000 unread emails?

    ^This is what happens when your kids in college don’t want to give their own email and give their mom’s email address instead...
    :eek:It used to freak me out but I’ve gotten over it:th

    :cafAny way to receive a text message instead?

    Maybe check to see if you can group your inbox by sender? Then all the BYC emails would be together.

    Just delete your entire inbox real quick.
    You don't need all those junk emails.
    Or make a new email address.
