Too many emails from confluence? Sometimes, a user of Confluence does not want to receive an email notification for every article edit.  Disable the Autowatch feature in the User Profile to prevent being added automatically as a watcher.  

This setting will not prohibit admins or users from manually adding watchers to spaces at a later time. 

Step-by-step guide

By default, each member of confluence is added as a "watcher" to all confluence spaces.  To disable this feature:

  1. Login to Confluence
  2. Click on the Profile icon in the top left corner 
  3. Select Settings
  4. Choose Email from the column on the left
  5. Uncheck Autowatch by clicking the Edit button at the bottom of the list. 
  6. Click Submit
