How to adjust your email and account settings

A number of people have emailed requesting modifications to their settings; this isn't a moderator task, but one that can be accomplished yourself, with the instructions you read when joining Freecycle.

If you can't see the groups, click on the "Groups" tab where you will see a list of the groups you are subscribed to and a summary of the settings.

From here you can change your settings. Click the "Change Settings" button on the right for the group you wish to change.

That page will present you with a drop down menu. The options are:

"None apart from Admins" - that will allow you to use Freecycle, respond and post, but will not send you email apart from admin messages.

"One for each post" - hopefully that's self explanatory, but you will receive one email for every post.

"Email Digest" - a group of posts together which you can respond to via links in the email replying to that email goes to the mods, who cannot help you with the item you're requesting.

It is important to then click "CHANGE EMAIL PREFERENCES", otherwise the setting won't be updated.

Finally, you will see a green button labelled "Leave this Group". That one should also be self explanatory.

Unless there is a very good reason, We will NOT change email preferences based on an email. Some users may wish to remove other members for malicious reasons and we have no means of verifying the source of the email - you've managed to join Freecycle, you have the ability to manage your subscription yourself.

Thanks for your time Regards
