    Since I have no e-mail subscriptions, why am I getting e-mail when new topics are created? How can I contact the people who handle the blog software? Can anyone help me? Thanks.

    I'm just now trying to figure out how to subscribe to this thread, so I might not be too much help. But check out the bottom of this webpage https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/passwordsafe-users. I got to it by clicking "Mailing Lists" (top of this page) then "passwordsafe-users."

    (Kind of funny that I was clicking on the "Update Email Subscriptions" button at the bottom of this forum when your post popped up with similar subject. But I suppose it was my new topic of Show Notes in Edit that triggered your post.)

    I found it: When the Open Discussion list of posts is displayed, hover your mouse over the envelope in the dark grey bar that says "Open Discussion". You'll see that toggles Subscribe/Unsubscribe to this Discussion.

    It seems that I was not subscribed, which makes me think something is really broken somewhere.... When I hovered, my choice was to "subscribe to this discussion". I presume the "discussion" is the whole "Open Discussion" list of topics.

    I subscribed and then unsubscribed. Maybe that will help.

    Thanks for figuring out that part at least, we'll see what happens now!

    And yes, I had gotten a message about your "Notes" topic, and also a couple of earlier ones, so it wasn't your fault! :-)

    Also it's just above the % ratings section on the main page at https://sourceforge.net/projects/passwordsafe/ when you're logged in.

    Big blue button: Update Notifications

    Subscribe to Updates
    Sent to xxxx@xxxxx.com. (change)

    If I click that "Change" link after the e-mail address, all of the choices there say that I am not subscribed to anything. That big blue button is labeled SUBSCRIBE to updates (not UNSUBSCRIBE from updates). Yet I am getting e-mails. Weird.

    The same here. Since I responded to a thread in 'Open Dsicussions', I seem to be subscribed to that (sub-)forum. It's not thread related. I get notification of every post in every thread.

    Where does one manage one's subscriptions or defaults? /me continues the hunt...

    I am still getting messages on threads and topics I am not subscribed to. Does ANYONE know how to fix this? Help!

    I have unsubscribed; that's the problem. I still get messages. I'll take your suggestions and open a support ticket with SourceForge; thanks for that pointer.
