Please describe your problem. Topic reply notification repeating - can not disable...

first post I had reply notification enabled. topic has three additional posts/responses. receiving about 70 notifications a day. unsubscribe via email, via link on bottom of post, via subscription in user manager, emails continue. turn off notification in admin, still same amount of emails.

email set to 0 - to try instead of batch of 50.

cleared cache in admin, no difference.

not a clue on how to proceed from here....

Thanks!

using ftp, go to the cache folder. see if there is a que.php file and delete it.

Since you are running on a Windows 2k3 server using IIS 6 you need to give the web IUSR account the correct permissions on the /cache folder. At a minimum it needs M/RE/LF/R/W. The script should then be able to correctly manage the cache files including queued email messages. :)

queue.php was there, and some zero length lock files (like queue.php.lok ) - moved all to a q dir to see if that is it, and yes, queue.php contained the message.

I had already given the 'user' account write privlage to cache, or even the site skins would not work... I just added modify too...

thanks guys!

Brian
