How can I stop a member from receiving email?

Note:  Only site administrators or Member Administrators are able to edit other members. You will need to contact your site administrator(s) if you are unable to complete the steps below.

There are two ways to stop a member from receiving email.

Method 1: Setting the member’s status to “inactive”

Note that this method requires all members who are sending out emails to send them out correctly.

Example: If Sandy wants to send an email to all Patronesses using the “Advanced User Selection Tool”, she will need to check the boxes for both “Patroness” under Member Role  and “Active” under Member Status. If Sandy forgets to check “Active” the email will be sent out to all Patronesses — both “Active” and inactive.

If you think members may not adhere to this requirement when sending email, use Method 2.

  1. Click on ‘Members tab‘.
  2. Select the member in question.
  3. Click on ‘Edit Member’ button in the right hand corner.
  4. Scroll down until you see “Member Status”.
  5. Uncheck “Active”.

Method 2: Deactivating the member’s login

Note that the member in question won’t receive email once the member’s login is deactivated, but they also won’t be able to log into the site.

  1. Click on ‘Members tab‘.
  2. Select the member in question.
  3. Click on ‘Edit Member’ button in the right hand corner.
  4. Scroll down until you see “Login”. It is below “Confirm Pswd”.
  5. Check “deactivated”.
  6. Click ‘Save’ button to update the changes to their member profile.
