Turn off activation email for certain admin, not all

Post by tplowe »

How do I turn off the user activation email being sent to me, but leave it on for other admin.

I have been elevated to full admin to work on a board. I am now receiving the user activation emails that go to the owner. Can I turn this feature off for my account only.

I can set this setting "Users can contact me by e-mail:" to "no".

But I assume there is a better way to do this.

Your answers seemed like the correct solution. But the user activation emails are still coming to me too.

Only thing that stops them is by changing setting in UCP. But then no email from registered users.
