At the moment when a POS is low on resources you get a warning mail every hour about it, which CEO, directors and i believe members with the correct POS management roles recieve.
It just comes down to spam, and is unneed in this extent in my opinion.

Ways to fix it which are not mutually exclusive;

A) limit status mails to 24hours and 1 hour before resources are depleted
B) make these mails optional, add a setting to not recieve those mails
C) remove mails all togeither, but add a POS management window, which lets you look at the status of all your POSs and their resource status (would be pretty useful anyway)

Please support, i know i am not the only one annoyed by the POS spam

D) keep towers fueled correctly so it doesnt cry?
E) use the POS API to monitor your tower.

Actually, I think the OP has a pretty good point. It's annoying as hell to get the mails once an hour. Once every six hours would be plenty.

Nah, my crumby memory needs reminders when the ****'s about to hit the fan.

logically i support my own thread.

Also i am a director i don't want anything to do with the POSs some members want to hold. so for me its just pure spam, not lazyness.

I support B).

I also support B) - many POSes are held and run by individuals and don't need to alert everybody in a director's position when they're low.

A) could also be a configurable option, and removal of mails altogether isn't such a good idea. I'm all for customizable configuration.

Not a bad idea they do get annoying but you need to think a little differently here.

Instead of limiting status mails to 24hours and 1hour make a bunch of options like 1, 2, 4, 8, 12, 24 hours and you can configure the tower or the POS Management Window like your idea in C on which countdowns you would like.

This would let people that kind of like the constant reminder and can still get it but those that are ****ed off by it can turn it off.

I support this in principle, just don't remove them completely.
A) Good
b) Good
C) Half Good - I like the POS management window idea, but not complete removal of the mails.

They do serve a purpose and are useful, but a little over the top right now.

I support B). Such a thing is trivial when it comes to implementing, and should be an option for the corp to set for their towers.

If you value giving priority to little fixes like this, vote for Cinori Aluben. My priority is that CCP make these "Little Things" a priority. As such small items wouldn't require heavy coding time, devoting dev time to them is solely a matter of prioritization, which the CSM will have an active part in now.

B) and 2nd part of C)
B)Will let director who is not involved with POS refueling to disable mails.
C) management window will let you check POS status then you need it without flying to it.
Sometimes it is required, especially if POS does not have static setup? and you can not say for sure how many days loaded fuel will last.

Supported.

Or

Fix the corporation menu and add pos***** under all the new pos roles.

Mails should be sent at 24h, 12h, 6h, 3h, and 1h, or something like that. Also, they should show fuel in the towers with times, as well as just quantities. API monitoring is nice and all, but the in-game tools should be up to snuff too. IMO, all three of OP's proposals are good changes.

I support C, with a bit of B on the side. You should be able to opt-in to receive mails from any particular POS - not just all of them.
