How can I ensure I get an email for every private message?

(Felix Freiberger) #1

I’m running a low-volume self-hosted Discourse install, so I want to ensure I get notified for every relevant thing that happens there. I’ve enabled mailing list mode, which takes care of all posts.

However, group messages are not affected by this: They only cause a notification on the site, not an email. What’s worse: I cannot change this for groups that have not got a message yet, as they do not appear on my messaging page.

Is there a way for me to ensure that any private message I get triggers an email?

Message notification by email seems like a sane default…

It’s probably off by default because groups could cause a lot of mails. But for users in mailing list mode, sending a mail would definitely be a sane default, I think.
