EyeInTheSky is a monitoring tool which watches the English Wikipedia Recent Changes feed for specific conditions to be met, and triggers IRC and email notifications when those conditions are met.
Here: EyeInTheSky - Commands
To stop receiving all alerts, you can remove your email address from the bot config by messaging the bot with the following command:
=account email none
This will stop the bot sending you any more email (by virtue of it no longer having an email address to send to), but will preserve the subscriptions you have in case you wish to re-enable notifications at a later date.
Subscriptions are done either by channel or by stalk - the alerts you get will tell you how you are subscribed to each individual stalk ("via stalk" or "via channel" will appear in the email).
To unsubscribe from notifications from a channel, use this command in the relevant channel:
To unsubscribe from notifications for an individual stalk, use this command in the relevant channel, where <flag> is replaced with the relevant flag:
=stalk unsubscribe <flag>

=account email firstname.lastname@example.org

Finally, you need to subscribe to whatever you wish to monitor. For an individual stalk, run the following in the relevant channel, where <flag> is replaced with the relevant flag:
=stalk subscribe <flag>
