how do I opt out of receiving spam?

  1. I don't see any settings to make my email address private! I've started receiving a TON of spam emails from all kinds of schools and the only site I can connect it with is this one. How do I prevent these spammers from seeing my email address and using it to flood my inbox with unwanted solicitations?

    Usually, if you go to the very bottom of the email, you will see an area where you can opt-out of emails. I would look there if I were you! Whenever I've used a website where I couldn't find out how to opt out in preferences, I always found it there! I found the preferences on here by going to the top right corner where you screen name is, click on it, then click on "Settings," then scroll down to "Site Settings," which is right under the "My Sites" area. Those settings don't have anything about email except for "Receive Email from Other Members" and "Receive Friendship Request by Email." So, I would try looking at the bottom of the email. I believe that is how I did it for this site as well! Good luck!

    Thank you! I've been marking all the messages I get as spam and unsubscribing individually, but I'd love to fix the problem at the source. I don't want to opt out of all emails from allnurses, but I may have to if I can't fix it any other way.
