Can I stop user_posted emails?


(Ankur) #1

I want that my forum should not send “user_posted” email to the users of the forum. Only summary messages should be sent to the users.
Please help me to stop these emails.

Why do you want to stop people from receiving a notification email when someone post in a topic they’re watching?


(Ankur) #3

It consumes a lot of emails, therefore, I want to send only summary emails. 900 forum members consume 50000+ emails in a month.

Did you set categories to watching by default?


(Ankur) #5

I am unable to find it. Where is it in settings?


(Ankur) #6

Yes, I find it and removed add categories here.
8 categories were added in this. It sent 570 emails when I replied a question today.
Will it work Ok now?

So the damage was self-inflicted, Discourse won’t email everyone on every post by default.

Now, every user created when the defaults were set will still have it. You may want to read this: How do I set category tracking level defaults historically
