How to disable the email notice ?

Now when  i update or watched some pages or other people update some pages, I will get  many emails.


I just want the email notice when some one @ me or  some one share page to me. 


So how to do it ?

Finally, I've found the solution. I cleared plugins cache. It worked for me.


Any knows how to re-enable the notification?


Did anyone find a solution? I've got the same problem: I used Atlassian instructions  to disable notifications and now I cant switch it on :(

you can adjust email notification in your profile settings. Open your profile -> settings -> Email

There you should disable "autowatch" and all subscriptions.

After that, you should look at your watches and click on stop watching for each. 

I knew it ,But I want to know how to adjust all user's email config?


OK, I config it by the step  .

I made a misstake  that disable some usefull moudle. But i can't  enable it again. 

How  to enable it ?

Please give us more information. How should we help without any information? What have you disabled?

The only thing, I can say is that your "useful module" might have dependencies to other modules which are still disabled. 

Maybe you have to enable your modules in the right order. But please be careful to not disable more modules. Is this a test Confluence or your production installation? Do you have a backup?

If you do not know, what you are doing there with the System add-ons, this could become a serious problem. Maybe you should ask Atlassian support for further support. 

blogpost-created-notification  Disabled
blogpost-edited-notification        Disabled
blogpost-trashed-notification       Disabled
blogpost-moved-notification    Disabled



When  i click the button "enable",It doesn't work. I always show diabled.


So i don't know how to enable this 4 moudles  again.

I'm sorry, I think this is not a case for this userforum anymore.

I think you should ask official Atlassian Support (, refer to that page in the Atlassian knowledgebase, describe your problem and ask them what to do next.

They can dive much deeper into your problem than we can do here.

Good luck!


OK. Thank  you very much.



I have the exact same problem and I find it insufficient that Atlassian gives instructions on how to disable notifications and doesn't say a word about how to re-enable it or that there can be problems.

Can you please tell me, what was the solution to this problem?

Thanks and greetings
