Getting email notifications for my own posts


I have checked Receive an email every time a post is made on the forum, but I did not expect it to be literal enough to email me about my own posts.

Is this intended behavior, or a bug? I personally think it’s rather useless to have my own posts emailed back to me, but there might be a reason for this that I’m unaware of.

That’s the mailing-list mode. Some people like to have a full local archive of all the messages, and that’s their choice.

You may be looking for watching categories, which follows the normal logic of not emailing you if you’ve been on the forum in the last 10 minutes.

Yes, this is 100% intended behavior, for the record.
