How do I completely disable the confirmation email and Email Is Important?
Are you doing the docker container? It would be easiest just to setup a free Mandrill account with the correct security credentials rather than bypass email activations if you’re going the docker route.
If you’re going the vagrant route, you can use
sidekiq as shown here discourse/VAGRANT.md at master · discourse/discourse · GitHub
I do not want to completely get rid of the email
Neither of those routes will get rid of email.
