I would like a digest to be sent regularly to a particular mailing list so that the people on there will notice when stuff happens in the forum. So I created an account for an email alias that initially points to me, configured it to receive a daily digest, and then I changed the alias to point to the list. However, this set-up is not ideal:
- After one year, digests will stop being sent. (According to https://meta.discourse.org/t/digest-e-mail-broadcast/21548.)
- Whenever I log in to change the configuration of that user, or to refresh that one-year timeout, a digest is lost.
Right now, I don’t even know if my setup works at all. It is now 22h since I created this account, and there was no Digest yet. I guess I have to wait another 24h before I even know if I have to start debugging.
It would be much easier, and much less fragile, if there was a setting somewhere to send digests to particular addresses, with a particular frequency - Digests that always include everything that happened since the last Digest was sent. Is this possible somehow?
