Message Center sends me my reply to messages

Recommended Posts

When I send a message to another cacher using the Message Center, I get an e-mail with a copy of my message (it says "Jbird and Zip has sent you a new message").

How to I disable this, uh, feature?

It's a setting in the Message Center.  See if this helps.  The last post in that thread shows a picture of the checkbox.

But it looks as if that setting would also stop messages from everyone from forwarding to email. Or am I missing something?

Check your Account email settings.

I do NOT have the "Forward Messages to Email" box checked in the Message Center settings.  I get an email when I get a Message, and I can answer via email, OR through the Message center.

The settings for getting emails for sent and received messages are in two totally different places. The one in your profile's Email Preferences affects only received messages, while the Forward Messages to Email in Message Centre only affects sent messages. Don't ask why because there is no why.

I have this annoying bug as well, where I receive a following email notification:
 

Quote

Geocaching: olda šetrnej, you have a new message from olda šetrnej!

it makes no sense to send this kind of notification - I haven't received a new message from myself, I have sent one out!

I want email notifications of when someone else sends me a message.

This is clearly a bug. It used to work ok before - this bug has been ocurring for months now.

Have you made sure your Forward Messages to Email setting in Message Centre is unchecked?

This setting only controls emails for messages you send. The one in your account profile controls emails for received messages.
