    @DanAdair in the customize plugin, you want to customize translations. There are a couple you might be interested in. First select the email namespace, then look for greeting_with_name and digest.title.<period>

    You can then customize the wording.

    Are you sure you didn't sign up for two accounts with two different users?

    I earlier wondered about that so I tried logging in using the alt gmail and was taken to a screen requesting I accept their access to info agreement, as if I were registering. I did not proceed.

    So strong implication is that being signed up under that account was not my issue (though it's not 100% because maybe terms of usage had changed, or due to a long time of inactivity, system requires a re-confirmation procedure).

    Could you try hitting the unsubscribe link in the email you receive?

    Now that's such a good idea, I expose myself as a doofus.

    The most recent email (to secondary account) had two links at the bottom:


    First I tried the alter settings link:


    Interesting, huh?

    Then I tried unsubscribe link:


    I guess we'll see if that eliminates the nuisance emails.

    The existence of the problem however remains mysterious.


    Now, after typing all the above, I notice the link for the alter settings action is simply


    which prods me to try the link with the trailing /settings removed, and I see it's valid, and it shows:


    Well I know from my notes that I was learning to access the site on that date, so apparently I did inadvertently activate that alternate account at that time.

    Thank you, PitaJ. I should have been able to solve this without your help.

    If you go to MailGun's site, there might be information there.

    @julian I found the category notifications plugin earlier today and I think it's going to be quite useful for our users so I'm glad that it exists!

    That's a shame, really, because Outlook (and Outlook Express) was just so terrible at managing email. I got my parents switched off of that years ago though, so haven't looked at Thunderbird since.

    These days nearly everyone uses web mail. Whether it is Zimbra or OWA, the quality of webmail has gotten so good that rarely do you want to do anything else except on your mobile devices. And if you want to go offline, Exchange uses to expect to go to Outlook and Zimbra has its own client too. The number of "working offline on non-mobile devices IMAP users" are dwindling. Thunderbird and Evolution cover that gap pretty well.
