Step 3: Select your preferred settings for new posts and for updates to posts you follow, then click "Save Settings":

Options for email notifications:
  • Real Time: receive an email notification immediately
  • No Emails: do not receive any email notifications, except when an instructor bypasses this setting
  • Daily Digest: receive a digest of new posts once a day
  • Smart Digest: receive a digest of new posts at most every 1-6 hours

Note: If you disable your email notifications or drop a class, there may be one more email digest queued up to send. After that, you will not receive any more.
