"It says he is a PCA Editor".

If you look at the bottom of the page, you will see a 'contact us' link. His name appears there.

It seems to me that if you should change your registered email address you not only get these emails to the new address but the old one also.Just do what I do,direct them to the spam folder.

Hi muffin1947, I know a character called Matt Egan...

The emails you get from me are our editorial newsletters. We send out two - the by-weekly general newsletter, and a daily round-up of tech news each evening at 5pm. If you're receiving them, you must have signed up for them (possibly when you joined the site). However, it's an opt-in service, we're here to provide advice and there's no benefit to anyone from us sending you emails you don't want. We pride ourselves on going beyond the law in keeping our email lists as clean as possible (and 70,000 people choose to receive our emails every day).

So, to unsubscribe from the PC Advisor newsletter, simply click on 'My Profile' at the top of this page (or the unsubscribe link in the emails). About halfway down the page you'll see two tickboxes for 'PC Advisor Newsletter' and 'PC Advisor Daily'. Untick one, or both of these, and hit 'Update My Account', and you'll no longer receive the emails. And I'll try not to be too upset.

Hope this helps. Post here or drop me an email if you have any further problems.

gengiscant we absolutely don't spam people. If you're having a problem with our emails let me know. As I say above, we're not remotely interested in sending emails to people who don't want them.

I did not say you spammed people, what I said is that if for whatever reason a registered email address has changed and one did not opt -out before changing email address then the newsletter will continue to be sent to the old address as well as the new.

Hope that's clearer!!!

gengiscant Ah, yes, good point. If that's the case drop me a line with the relevant details. I'm always up for a bit of data cleansing...

muffin1947 You're not wrong. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I just took the liberty of logging in as you, and I also checked both our email and user databases. You were unsubscribed at every stage up to - but not including - the email list, which is very odd.

So, firstly, I have manually taken you off the list, and you shouldn't receive any more emails. Please accept my apologies.

Almost as important, and so I can chase this up with our development team (and make sure no-one else is in the same situation), can you confirm that you had unsubscribed prior to today? I need to make sure it's not just a question of time (the email database queries the user database only at certain times, to reduce system overhead).
