I’m admin and I’ve been testing discourse before we send out actual invites to members.
As far as emails, it works. Test email works. It also works when I send out invites and passwords requests.
It doesn’t work when someone mentioned someone else (yes ‘Send an email notification even when the user is active by default.’ is ON). And it doesn’t work when someone else replies to my topic. I have email notification turned on for both mentions and topic reply for all my mock members including me.
Is there a setting that overrides this somewhere I haven’t seen?
