I can't turn off e-mail notifications here

This problem have occured on other forums too:

In Options, I say for "Allow Bulletin Board Administrators and Moderators To Send You Email Notices?" that "no", but I still get e-mail notifications about new posts on subscribed threads.

It irritates me 'cause I don't need them. Though, if I unsubscribe from all threads, I won't be able to follow them from "User Profile" neither.

What to do?

"Use 'Email Notification' by default?" is also "no".

As far as I know, you can't, it's a limitation of this version of vBulletin. Here is my understanding, I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong:

Use 'Email Notification' by default? emails you if someone replies to a topic you've posted in, whether or not you are subscribed to it.

Subscribing to a thread always emails you if a new post is made in that thread, whether or not you have posted in it.

Newer vBulletin versions have an option called Default Thread Subscription Mode that would do what you want, but it is not available here.

The only way to stay subscribed to threads and not receive email is to change your email address to a junk address, or filter the mail from your mailbox.

Doesn't it fix it if you go User Profile -> Edit Options -> Set "Use 'Email Notification' by default?" to "No"?
