Unsubscribing from daily summary email

I have users who do not wish to get the "Confluence Changes in the last 24 hours" emails. They have the "Subscribe to daily updates" box unchecked in their Profile / Settings / Email page, but they still get this particular email every day. Is there any way for a user to "opt out" of getting this email (short of removing their email address from their user account)?

We are running Conflence 3.4.5 at the moment ... if a newer version allows this or resolves a bug related to this, that would be useful information too.

It will disable all the updates, but, not sure if disable notify watchers too. Since Confluence doesn't have a option to completely toggle the Notify Watchers checkbox, the best workaround we can provide to you is to remove the "watchers" of the page or better than yet, you can make the checkbox unchecked by default:

  1. No Email Storm Plugin which says on the description: Get rid of barely noticeable "Minor change"/"Notify watchers" checkbox and use "Save & Notify" and "Save" buttons.
  2. You can try to apply the customization mentioned above:

Navigate to Confluence Admin >> Custom HTML
Insert the following At the End of the HEAD:

<script type="text/javascript">
AJS.toInit(function () {
  AJS.$('#notifyWatchers').attr('checked', false);

You can also add you vote on this Feature Request to share your thoughts with Atlassian.



As I said in the original question, unchecking the "daily updates" box does NOT stop this particular daily email, and it is not associated with watched pages either.
