Does anyone know how you can 'unsubscribe' to a particular topic?

For example, I posted in the '7805 regulator' topic quite early on and am receiving notifications to each new reply. However, there have now been 28 replies and its going off topic, so I'd rather not keep receiving notifications for that particular topic any more, but I don't want to cancel all email notifications for any topic I have posted in, just this one.

In other forums there is an 'unsubscribe to topic' check box on the page of the particular topic. But I can't see one on this forum unless I have completely missed it.

On a different post a while back I had the same problem. I posted right at the start, and there went on to be over 100 replies going off in various directions - my inbox was full of these notifications which weren't really relevant to the original posts!

No good - I want to know if there is an option to stop receiving emails for new posts on a specific topic, not cancel all notifications.

Other than trying the limited options in Profile, you could try creating a mail filtering rule as dselec suggests.

Unfortunately there isn't a selective 'Unsubscribe from this thread' option in this forum software :-(

I have the same problem and long ago I disabled it altogether in my Profile. It would be a nice feature, but Discusware is now very long in the tooth, no longer supported, clunky but very solid underneath and I guess it does what it does I'm afraid. Sorry!
