Why am I still getting emails after updating my email settings?

I recently unchecked all my email settings options, except for the setting "Subscribe to daily updates".

Yet I am still getting emails every time someone edits any page in any Confluence space I am a member of.

Any advice?

It sounds like you are watching the spaces/pages. 

The 'Watches' page in your user profile displays a list of all pages and spaces you are currently watching.

To manage your watches:

  1. Choose your profile picture at top right of the screen, then choose Watches.
  2. Choose Stop Watching for any unwanted spaces or pages.

OMG, yes. I think I am watching every page I've ever visited!

Any advice how to stop watching pages by default?

When you unchecked Autowatch in your email settings that should have done it:

Pages and blog posts that you create, edit or comment on will automatically be watched for future changes.
