is it possible to change the settings, so only users that are allowed to answer into a category are receiving email updates for this category, but can still read it on the Discourse plattform?
I have implemented Discourse as a communication plattform for an NGO which still mostly works via email communication, so members automatically receive emails for new posts in their groups and can also answer via email.
Working groups are using categories to discuss their work. This working groups should be readable for the extended board members, but these people should not have answer/create permissions. Still, at the moment they receive email updates for every new post and if they answer via mail, they get an error message. this creates confusion. I would like the board members to be able to log in to the plattform and read discussions in groups, they are not part of, if they want, but do not get email notfications for those groups.
Is it possible to achieve this with discourse at the moment? If yes, a hint in the right direction would be appreciated Thank you!
