Continuing the discussion from Very secret info and email notifications:
“Secure email mode” site setting ensures that no content is leaked to the outside via emails when the site’s content is sensitive.
My Forum is safe (HTTPS, secure server) and I use it for discussion of sensitive information. However, participants may use insecure emails and mailing list / notifications / digests will leak sensitive information to outside agents.
- Mailing List Emails
- Notification Emails
- Push Notifications
All notifications to outside systems will be replaced by a “dumb” notification:
Instead of a standard notification, you will get a mail only saying that there is a new reply for you on the forum.
Digests will only have the big numbers section.
Mailing list makes no sense in this mode, so I believe we can expect that it will be disabled.
