Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I normally visit SO every day, but I rarely go to SF and SU, except to ask a question. In those two, I always get subscribed by e-mail, just in case i forget to get back and check for answers.

Now, in many cases, I get the answer in the same day and mark it as accepted. In those cases, I don't really need the e-mail to notify me the day after (and it's actually kind of confusing), so I propose to disable it for questions with accepted answers.

The reasoning here being "if I mark an answer as accepted, I've moved on, i'm no longer looking for another answer"

Just my 2 cents, may this is not that good an idea for everyone, not sure.

Just uncheck the "Notify [your e-mail here] daily of any new answers" option at the bottom of the question. – ChrisF May 5 '10 at 15:06
I wouldn't like this. I want to keep being notified of alternatives even after I've accepted one, just in case something even better comes along. I agree with @ChrisF, if you don't want the notifications any more you can disable the option when it's appropriate for you. – Simon P Stevens May 5 '10 at 15:33
