    Once a week is more than enough. If I need some topic I can always look in the forum.

    Daily is OK with me. Keeps me up to date without having to log in every day.

    Surely, you don't have to read the email on the day it arrives, read them when you want, simples LOL

    Hitting delete once more per day is not a big deal and daily digests actually prompt me to read more of the things that tweak my interest. I don’t have a problem the way it is. For those who want to see less you can likely set you your email app to put the daily digests into a separate folder which you can review once a week and delete all or set to automatically delete.

    I think this thread started out as a 'what's going on' which has been explained by the Admin. And now its developing into a clunky informal survey of individuals desired email frequency, with no real confidence the software can/will/should be changed or in what time frame. Here's a thought - how about the Admin posts a survey & bases software enhancement & priority on that outcome. That's kind of what surveys are all about; gathering stats from hundreds of users.

    But personally, I really think there should be a checkbox, daily, weekly, monthly, never. And I may change my mind one day, so why the permanence requirement? Many other forums have this functionality because it makes sense.

    Good morning from the Antipodes. (Sometimes known as Australia, which the Flat Earthers say doesn't exist, so this message is a phantom. !!)

    I'm of the opinion that weekly, or fortnightly would be better, as there's a lot of repetition in the current daily digest.

    I also agree that a selection button, allowing us to choose the frequency would be a good idea. That way we can change as needed, without losing all contact.

    Cheers

    As I head for the shed.

    I have created a compromise, by setting up a message rule in my email program, so they are sent to a dedicated folder when they arrive, then I browse them when I feel like a change of reading. Also makes it relatively easy to find something I looked at before

    How do I delete my account?

    Getting messages every day is starting to feel like spam...

    Weekly or monthly would be much preferable. But, I won't know if you change, because I turned the emails off...

    @Dataporter, have you unsubscribed from the link at the bottom of the email? The email controls here are not those that work on the Newsletters.

    I am receiving 3 -4 of the same email daily. Once a week would be good.
