Is there a way to "mute" a thread being sent to you after you have read a new question and know it isn't applicable to what you want??  I have looked through the profile section and really see no way to do that.

Un-follow it at the top right of the page.

Email notification settings are in your profile. If you set the "Community Notifications" to "Notify me of new topics", but clear the "Notify me of every new reply", you should only get one per new topic, and follow ups will not show up unless you follow it or reply to it. Also, if you are currently subscribed to replies for a topic, just "Unfollow " it.

Of course it's also possible to just turn everything off :-)

Ted, Thanks for that.  It got to me re-read the items on the page you mentioned.  The "green, save button" says "Company Notifications" instead of Community Notifications, and my tired, old 71 yr old brain interpreted that to mean that I would not receive Company notifications any longer from Flex itself.  Also, I am NOT social media literate at all and didn't realize that when I viewed a topic, that is "following" it.  So, hopefully I have fixed all of this and will not NOT receive hundreds of emails a day of no interest to my station.  
Thanks again, Don, WB5HAK

Don, reading a post will not subscribe you to it - if you reply, then it will subscribe you. If subscribed, the "Unfollow" will turn that off. It's only that setting in your email prefs that will cause everything to come to you, whether or not you read it or replied to it.

Hope I didn't misunderstand your reply :-)

Ted, thanks for that.  I'm not sure how I am "following" some of these, but I'll watch to be sure I am not doing something inadvertently to cause it to happen, like the things you helped me fix.  Thanks again, it's MUCH quieter on the community.  I did some very early Basic programming on the first Radio Shack Model I computer, even taught some basic computer literacy courses then to help folks get over fear of the computer, but didn't really ever stick and life got in the way of me continuing that.  I'm so far behind now, I'll never catch up, I fear.  I am having enough of a time making the Maestro Matt talked me into buying for my 6300 to work as it should, that I wonder if it was wise for me to try "flexing" at all, HI.  I'll stick at it a while and KEEP reading :-)

I’m sure you will get on top of it Don. I’ll be 79 this year, and if I can then anyone can then anyone can.

Thanks for the kind words, Winston.  They are needed some days.  I do seem now to have a handle on message volume, and that is a BIG help.  I'll keep plugging on the Maestro/6300 combo.
