Hi,
Since updating to the latest version of BOINC I get notices every time when starting the program, that I have disabled fetching tasks for the CPU for certain application. This is intentional from my side, since I want only to fetch tasks for the GPU and it it annoying getting notified every time about this. Any idea how to disable those type of messages? Thank you!

Unfortunately this is a project specific thing.
Some projects have a setting in your profile page (on their @home web-page) where you can disable emails from this project.
I just ignore them.

This is due to the client reporting these things at startup (you can check that in the event log CTRL+SHIFT+E) as a reminder to you that you set these settings. They only happen at a client restart. And then there's a bug about it because when you have multiple projects where this is set, they won't all show in the Notifications tab. But anyway, there's no fix for this.

I have an issue open about the above bug but will add to it that a lot of people (and a developer) find this behaviour annoying and that they would like for an option to silence this behaviour.
