Some have been frustrated with the large number of emails that they receive from NavyforMoms if they are a member of one or more very active groups. Here is how I have reduced the number of emails I receive and yet still follow things that are important to me.
Click on Settings in the upper left.
Click on Email in blue in the middle.
Here is what I have:
Send me email notifications...

A personal message
A message from one of my groups
A message from one of my events
A message sent to multiple recipients
Alerts sent by an app

An event invitation

I don't want to receive emails from Navy For Moms
Dots indicate the items I have marked. You may want something different.
Be sure to Click the "Save" button after you make the changes.
Anytime I comment on the Comment Wall in a group I click "Stop Following" so that I don't get notifications for new comments. Instead I go to the "My Groups" tab and see when the last activity was and I go to the group if there has been activity since I last visited the group. (Click on the GROUPS tab and then click "My Groups" or you can click "My Groups" if you are currently on the main page of any group and it will take you to the listing of the groups you are a member of. You can see if there has been any activity in the groups you are a member of by checking the info next to "Latest Activity" under each group.Your groups are also listed on your My Page on the left. You may need to click on "Groups" in blue in the listing under your profile pic and then you will be able to see all of your groups and can the date or time of the latest activity for each group and then go to any group that has had activity since you were last on.) I also watch the "Latest Activity" feed on the left to see if there in any new activity that I might be interested in.
I don't click "Stop Following" in Discussions and Blogs because usually there is not a lot of activity in those (although some get pretty active at times) and I might miss something if I turned off notifications for those.
I used to have friend requests and comments on my My Page turned off because I can easily check for those, but I have them turned on right now. (If you have any new Friend Requests, then there will be parentheses with the number of new requests you have. Just click on "Friends" or the parentheses to go to your Friends and click on "Requests Received" to accept or decline a friend request from a member. After accepting a request, you will then be able to leave a comment for the member or send a PM. If you turn off notifications for comments on your Comment Wall, then be sure to check the Comment Wall on your My Page at least every time you log on to see if you have any new comments.)
I do not receive notifications about personal messages since it is easy to see if a message is in the Inbox when I log on. (Look in the upper left next to Inbox. If there are any new messages, then there will be parentheses with the number of new messages you have. Just click on "Inbox" or the parentheses to go to your Inbox to read your PM's.)
Anyway, that is how I cut down on the hundreds of emails I used to get daily from N4M.
I hope that helps you some.
