I don't mind getting an email from facebook about an event a friend puts on. Or a message they send me.

What bothers me are the "Reconnect with your friends" emails.

how do I stop them but not stop others?

Also the "Getting back into facebook" "Welcome back to facebook" funnily enough I only signed in to look for an option to stop the spam and they sent me those other two emails!

The email settings for what gets sent to you are under the notifications tab of the Account Settings page (Top right Account dropdown -> Account Settings)

In the notifications tab, under "View settings for" there are is a link, "Other updates from facebook," you may want to start there.

I want to know precisely how to stop these emails and not those emails. As I specified. – barlop Nov 18 '10 at 13:43
