Emails from both Watching & Digest - about the same post


(Allen - Watchman Monitoring) #1

I’m looking to allow all my forum users to receive each email from key categories, and digests from others.

I would use the normal mailing list mode, but that’s too blunt a hammer for my use.

I had settled on Watching a category as the mailing list mode, but see that users are getting double emails.

Users who are Watching the announcement topics get emails about posts & replies. However, they are also getting digests which contain nothing but those same topics.

Could/should Watching a category count as seeing it, and prevent any of those posts from being included in digests?

Would the new Watching First Post category notification state help here? That is coming very soon.

It would not help our use-cases, no.

Thanks
