Group email notifications are not sent when set to Watching First Post

Priority/Severity: Medium

Platform: Desktop, macOS Ventura 13.3.1, Browser: Safari Version 16.4.

Description: Emails notifications are not being sent to group members when a new message is sent if Watching First Post is selected as the group notification option.

Reproducible steps:

  1. Create a test group, add 2 members or more and set Watching First Post as the group notification option in the Interaction settings.

  1. Send a new PM addressed to the group.

  1. Check the email logs → There is no trace of emails of type user_watching_first_post sent to the group members in any of the tabs (Sent, Skipped, Bounced).

In contrast, Watching notification group emails are indeed sent.


This should be resolved now. Thanks for the detailed report @pedrom
