I'm going away for a week soon and I don't want to come back to a mailbox overflowing with forum posts, much as they are useful. Is there any way I can suspend them for a week, say?
How about disabling your email in your profile? (I haven't tested that mind; just the first thing that came into my head)
Profile > Edit Profile > Email activated > This email address is deactivated.
It works. We use this method all the time.
Thanks for those replies. I went away for the weekend recently and came back to 247 Moodle forum post , not to mention the run of the mill emails from friends etc.
