Turn off email triggers for deleted Sharepoint files

I turned on email triggers to notify me whenever a file is deleted in our SharePoint site. Now I want to turn that off and forgot where the switch is.

    Hi @Mary Normandt ,

    According to your description, when a file is deleted in the entire site, you will receive an email reminder, right?

    If so, you may have enabled the alert policy in the admin center. You can go to:


    And then click alert policies to find the corresponding policy, and you can choose to turn the status off or delete it.

    If you just received an email reminder when a file is deleted in a library, you can check with:

    1. Whether alert is enabled at the library level, if so, delete it. 04262
    2. Whether the automatic running flow is set, if so, turn it off or delete it. 04263
