emails turned off - still getting them

As per thread title. I went in to my user control panel and changed the setting to no emails but I am still getting them. What gives?

What exactly are the emails that you’re receiving?

When someone posts to a thread I am subscribed to I get an email. I want this to stop.

Go to Quick Links, subscribed threads; check all, then at the bottom change the notification status.

I gather you’ve already gone to User CP and changed the default notification status in edit options.
