I have been here a long time but I really find this a definite intrusion in my privacy that you allow anyone to send me emails, this was not though out well and I hope it is corrected ASAP. One little click and tons of email. I will be forced to block all emails which would be too bad because I enjoy the emails I get from here on challenges and weekly updates.

Hi,

There is not currently a way to block people from sending you challenge invitations. My original reply was in regards to stopping the daily challenge update emails. SparkPeople sends the invitations and daily messages to the email registered on your account.

I will share your feedback with the team here.

I certainly didn't give them my email, unless the notifications also turn this off there is a part where you share them, I guess that means spark forwards the email. On person sent me 4
Blocking would not work if even non friends can send the mail, here you have no choice who puts you up as a friend

I just checked and turning off notifications doesn't turn off the fact that anyone can send challenges to anyone and everyone with a click

"I do not think they should be able to send me email it is one thing to send me spark mail but not email"
So, you gave them your personal email address?
No one here has mine. I guess I would just block them.

so is there anyway to prevent people from sending you challenges other then getting rid of friends. I had 8 or 9 challenges from people here that were not even my friends, I do not think they should be able to send me email it is one thing to send me spark mail but not email

Hi,

Go into the challenge and then click the "Challenge Settings" link. There is a box you can uncheck for receiving daily emails. You will have to do that for each individual challenge.

I hope this helps!

I can not find a place to turn off all these emails about spark challenges, I had tons of them tonight, it is possible to shut them off?
