Once you are logged in, click on Manage communications and then check both options and you can stop the emails.

What browser are you using to visit the site? I suggest using internet explorer if you're not

Also reset iE to default and see if you that fixes it

It's weird that you are not seeing it.

Attached is the screen short from Internet Explorer 11 in Windows 8.1

Please let us know if that's what you are seeing. You will get that screen whether you are logged in or not

it would not happen if they used a different color that people notice
it looks like they do NOT want people to find it
so much for their user friendlyness..
