In the " Add more granular user option levels for email notifications" feature that was added in 2.3.0 beta 6, the “Send me email notifications even when I am active on the site” setting was removed in favor of separate “always / only when away / never settings” for messages and for other notifications. (
This is a great improvement. However, the accompanying text “Send me an email when someone quotes me, replies to my post, mentions my @username, or invites me to a topic” does not cover all emails, especially those that are sent by the watched/tracked settings in Preferences - Notifications - Categories, while these are being covered by that setting.
(Actually it seems like this was always the case, but it got more confusing now since the explicit ‘always send everything’ setting was removed).
Maybe this could be worded in more broad terms (for instance: “topic activity notifications”) so it would cover the category notifications as well ?
