I'm still getting those even though I've turned off email notifications in my profile. Please someone explain

Could you have another account that forwards to the address of your main account?

Well I did make another account sometime ago when I couldn´t remember my password for this one but that is linked to a different email address, it must be since different accounts can´t share the same email address

Well what do you know, that account did share the same email address, I think that should settle that, now that I have turned off the email notification on that account too.

I'm glad you found the cause of the mystery. Accounts were allowed to have the same e-mail prior to January 2009 so I'm not surprised you were able to have two accounts with the same e-mail.
