This is probably a holdover from folks that are using Discourse in a similar manner to old email listservs, but what I’m noticing is that many users signup for email notifications and then build a rule to shuttle them to a specific mail folder. Sometimes they look at the folder, sometimes they don’t.
At issue is when someone @mentions a user in a post, the Subject for the @mentioned notification is the same as any other for example, this message contained an @mention of my username:
[CLC-ListServ] [Staff] This is a test of a large image
I was wondering if email notifications that were @mentions to the user in question could have something added to their subject line, like:
[CLC-ListServ] [Staff] [@mention] This is a test of a large image.
That way we could inform users that they should build mail filters that treated these messages differently, so they were less likely to just end up in one of their Bacn folders.
