How do I disable email notifications for changes that I make to JIRA issues?

Email notifications are very helpful for my team to keep track of comments that OTHER people make on issues we're watching, issue status changes, etc.

However, when I edit an issue or make a comment to it, I don't really need to be notified of the changes that I made (because I just made them...), and I just end up having to clean my Inbox of all those unnecessary emails.

Is there a way to disable email notifications being sent to users for changes that THEY made?

This is a user specific profile setting. Go to your profile -> settings -> email settings -> notify on own actions

The admin can set that as the default. Unfortunately, it will only apply to users created after after changing the setting. Most people don't want to see their own updates emailed to them.
