Sick Of DirecTv Mail

Every Monday I get mail on my receivers from DirecTv. It's like clockwork every Monday I get Mail. I'm Sick of them sending me mail. Is there anyway to turn Mail "Off" And While I'm Ranting Has DirecTv ever come up with a way so we could turn off our scoreguide when we flip to Sportschannels? I am getting so sick of these. :mad::mad:
Just ignore both. You have to actually click on the mail to see what it is....DON'T CLICK ON IT. I have numerous messages up there....I simply pay no attention to it.
Scoreguide......again, Don't click on it. You need to click the red button to activate it. Don't click the red button or click exit when you see the message and it'll go away.

They should just assign a a default button or channel like the Active button is more then fine. We don't need to see these on every sports channel.
The mail, well its nice to hear offer, but when I subscribe to Premier pack, they shouldn't send this free preview junk mail when it benifits us in no way shape or form.

I've never opened Directv Mail and have never noticed it.
I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Saw an old sony receiver (sat-b55) in a smatv, that receiver actually has an led on the front that lights up red when there is mail. If I remember right that was a damn fast unit too.
Loved my Sony Sat A55's and B55's. They were rock solid, fast and worked great. The A55 was Dolby Digital and one of the few at the time. I slaved the B55 to a TiVo Series 1 for years via the low speed data port and it never failed. Those were great units.

At least we have a free HBO/Cinamax preview this weekend. I wouldn't have known, without the mail service.
Season premier of True Blood; that will always be a free weekend(most likely).

It wasn't so long ago that DTV defended its practice of not mailing us about important things (such as the reassignment of FX a few days before the Shield finale) because it said it didn't want to bother us unnecessarily. And now look.

Nope they arent!!!
They are barely noticeable.......
All you see if the envelope highlighted -- If you dont care to see whats in it,DONT!!
I wish spam was that easy to ditch!
