I started off our new Discourse forum with me as the designated sender of the Welcome Message. I figured this would be a nice way to give the message a human touch, and I did indeed have a few pleasant exchanges, just like I had here here on Meta when I got my welcome message from @codinghorror
Problem is, I now have hundreds out outgoing messages crowding up my Messages. When I went there to find an exchange I needed to reference it was really difficult because all of the messages are titled the same as well!
I ended up doing the following:
- Reset to default sender, i.e. @system
- Give @system our default contact e-mail.
- Set @system’s notification settings to send mail when being mentioned or receiving private messages.
Hopefully this works out.
Has anyone else encountered this problem? Did you take a different route?
