Stopping emails

I've noticed that this question has already been asked, but never really solved.

How can I stop emails from the forum when someone replies to my message, quotes me and that sort of things? I know I can configure the threads I participated in as "silent" or something, but I'm not going through hundreds of threads, mindlessly clicking around. Moreover, I'm actually fine with notifications within the forum. I just want to stop the emails and leave the forum's internal notification alone. Any advice?

Change the email address associated with your account.

There are email preferences you can set on your account page.

I hadn't noticed, thanks for pointing this out. I'll try to make it work.
