How do I stop these emails. I can't find out. I changed csf.conf but it did nothing.

Code:
Subject: lfd on serverwhatever.com: High 5 minute load average alert - 6.27
Time:                    Tue Jun 23 19:23:28 2020 -0400
1 Min Load Avg:          3.88
5 Min Load Avg:          6.27
15 Min Load Avg:         7.70
Running/Total Processes: 12/415

This is managed in /etc/csf/csf.conf:

Code:
# Check the PT_LOAD_AVG minute Load Average (can be set to 1 5 or 15 and
# defaults to 5 if set otherwise) on the server every PT_LOAD seconds. If the
# load average is greater than or equal to PT_LOAD_LEVEL then an email alert is
# sent. lfd then does not report subsequent high load until PT_LOAD_SKIP
# seconds has passed to prevent email floods.
#
# Set PT_LOAD to "0" to disable this feature
PT_LOAD = "30"
PT_LOAD_AVG = "5"
PT_LOAD_LEVEL = "6"
PT_LOAD_SKIP = "3600"
