Discourse sending repeated topic email message

Hello everyone,

After updating to 2.9.0.beta5 - 7ac485fb9f my site is experiencing a problem where uses are receiving 10s of duplicate emails for topics they are following. This was not happening before the update. My users are understandably getting frustrated.

Is there a setting to turn off all outgoing emails? I need to silence this problem somehow until I can figure out what is going on.

Sidekiq is filling up with retry entries:


There’s the disable emails admin setting, but that turns off all emails, which may be too far. There’s also the default email level you can change to ‘never’, and apply historically. If it’s only affecting a portion of users you could ask them to change theirs manually (or change them individually as admin).

I’m not sure what the issue is with the duplicates though. Perhaps clearing sidekiq could help?
