Magento CE 18.104.22.168
We recently signed up for an email and list management service that taps into Magento and allows us to manage all transactional and newsletter emails through their application. This is a very convenient service and we would like to disable some of our outgoing Magento emails and just their service handle it. The only problem is that they are new to Magento and do not currently have an option to disable the default emails that Magento sends out which would result in customers getting two sets of emails - specifically, I need to disable the Newsletter Subscription Success email, Order Update email and New Account Signup email.
Does anyone know of a way to do this programmatically?
I found this thread on SE which addresses the Newsletter Subscription email https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2844023/magento-store-dont-send-newsletter-success-email
There also seem to be an extension which has mixed reviews because it doesn't address custom email templates and has a few bugs: http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/disable-email-notifications.html
