How do I change how often I receive e-mails?

Primary tabs

Default settings

  1. To change the default settings, click on “Edit” at the top of your account page.
  2. Scroll down to near the bottom of the form; you'll see a box called “Messaging and notification settings”.
  3. The “default send interval” is usually initially set to “immediately”.  If you would rather not get messages immediately when content is published, and would rather receive e-mails all at one time every so often, you can choose a different default send interval, such as hourly daily, weekly, etc. 
  4. If you choose something other than “immediately”, you might want to consider receiving your notifications as a digest, which means one long e-mail containing many updates, instead of one e-mail per update.  The next page contains directions on how to set up a digest.
  5. Save the changes by scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking “Save”.
  6. This changes your default settings, not the settings for the notifications you're already signed up for.  The next page explains how to change your existing notifications.

Existing Notifications

  1. Click on “Notifications” at the top of your account page.
  2. Click on “groups” on the next line down.
  3. Change "Send interval" for the "Type" of content you want to be notified.
