My usecase: im importing my current forum incrementally, in the first step, we will need to do a lot of recategorizing, giving folks badges, putting users in user groups, move posts around, put up new topics with help, etc. Meanwhile, a few select users will be invited to help with testing etc.
During that, I want to make sure that no current users get notification mails from a forum they don’t know exists. The “disable all emails” setting won’t work because the test users need to be able to request a new password to login.
I have already disabled the email digest and set the setting that sets all categories default on “muting”
I want to make sure no other mails or notification mails of any kind are sent except when specifically requested by users for a new password.
What can I do to make sure no emails are sent ? Is this enough?
Thank you for helping me understand this!
