I had clicked something in Launchpad, under impression i will receive answers by email, relevant to my question.

But now I am getting a flood of completely irrelevant emails, hundreds a day, which i diverted to trash. But i can't find where to un-click this option, I have to frequently empty thousands of irrelevant emails from trash, which deletes other messages as well, the ones i might possibly want to recover. Thousands of messages can't be managed the "normal way", it's like finding needle in hundred haystacks.
