    I tried unticking the " and receive email notifications of replies" under preferences, but I am still getting emails.
    Anyone knowns how to disable this?

    Have you also deactivated the email options in the “contact details” and “privacy” menus?

    Y'mean the " Receive news and update emails" bit? I assumed that was for only PMs and administrator messages. I will check.

    Ok after ages I figured it out...

    I needed to go into Watched Threads, select ALL, and then among the menu down at the bottom, select "stop email notifications".
    Why I had to do this AFTER turning off email notifications already in 2 separate places, I will never know.
