Facebook sends me a lot of notifications on my email and sometimes it annoys me. How can I disable all these notifications? I just want to check the incoming messages only when I open Facebook website.

  1. Account (top right) > Account Settings > Notifications.
  2. Uncheck all the notifications you don't want.
    If you have a lot of them that you want to uncheck, you could use a Toggle Checkbox bookmarklet.
  3. Press Save Changes at the bottom.

Note that it says at the bottom:

Even if you turn off all notifications, we may sometimes need to email you important notices about your account

You can also create a filter in your email client which filters out notification email only.
