    Regardless of the devices you are using to access BYC you all have an "ACCOUNT" section.
    In the account section you will need to located 6 different areas. (It's only 6 not 100 ;))
    I will list the 6 areas here first then attach pictures of what these areas look like using Safari on a desktop computer. There may be one or five boxes relating to emails in each section, so please make sure you READ every line item in each section.

    2. Privacy

    I've added a new "Guide" prefix to this section of the site, and added it to this thread :)

    JUST noticed another place to check for emails notifications.
    When viewing your WATCHED THREADS list...
    look here: (MANAGE WATCHED THREADS drop down box) (Safari Desktop Pic below)

    You will need to scroll to the bottom of that list...the one in your picture...and click on SHOW ALL WATCHED threads FIRST....then At the top of this list you will have the drop down list like in my picture in post #4 here.

    hope this helps someone.
