Disable all emails

How do I prevent this site from sending me emails? I click on the link at the bottom of the email that says "disable all emails". It takes me to a page that asks if I want to update my email notification settings. I click "update settings". The next pages tells me "Your email notification selections have been updated." Yet I keep receiving endless notification emails. I'm happy for notifications to work on this site when I log in, but I don't want the emails. Anyone got a fix? Thanks!

Edit: I'm aware I could just block TFL emails, but I'd rather not spam the heck out of my junk folder either.

Make sure you un-select the email alerts.

Thanks. I turned them all on and then turned them all off, and, oh, bugger, I'm still getting some emails... not to threads I've posted in, but I received an email to alert me to your reply to this thread. hmmm....

If any mods are here, can you make that setting linked to in the email a universal setting? It doesn't appear to do anything currently.

Update: management are aware of this. There's no such universal setting available. This isn't something we can change, as TFL runs on a software platform that is ultimately set in functionality terms by the provider. As I understand it, the default setting is no notifications, so worth checking individual threads you get a notification from - you should be able to unsubscribe from those, but it will I fear have to be done on a per thread basis.
