How to Stop Getting So Many Emails

Adv-Girl T.
Group Organizer

Post #: 38
Our members have asked us how they can be removed from getting emails from the Organizers posting or reminding you of events.

Note: There's currently no way to disable special announcements from your Organizers.[/b]

How Can I stop Getting so Much Emails

However, You can control what kinds of emails you receive from your Meetup Group via the edit email settings option on each of your group profile pages. The settings will allow you to control how and when you receive mailing list messages, notifications and reminders.

You'll find the same settings for all of group memberships on your Membership and Communications page.

Tips on how to reduce the amount of email you receive from your Meetup Groups:

Change your Meetup email preferences
(as described above)

RSVP for events
RSVPing "No" for an event will take you off of the email list for that particular event's reminders.

Filter your emails in your email account
It would be ideal to print out the directions and apply the steps directly as you read them, or to open another browser window and simultaneously read the instructions from window 1 as you apply them to window 2.

About Hotmail Filters
Type "filter" in the dialog box

Click on the first link, "Filter incoming messages" and follow the directions accordingly

Examples of filter rules (red text is a user-created folder):
If Subject contains "New Meetup" move message to MU Announcements

If Subject contains "Reminder:" move message to MU Reminders

If Subject contains "Ratings" move message to MU Ratings

If Subject contains "{adventurers-42}" move message to {DC/MD/VA_Adventure} Meetup

If From address contains "[masked]" move message to Meetup

If Subject contains "comment was just posted" move message to Comments

If Subject contains "just said they're going to" move message to RSVP

If Subject contains "just changed their status to" move message to RSVP

If Subject contains "they're not going" move message to RSVP

Example of filtering mailing list messages to a separate folder:
If From address contains "­" move message to DC/MD/VA_Adventure meetup

The above should cover most of your Meetup email bases.
