"Send me an email for every new post" also notifies for self posts


(Pierre-Olivier Latour) #1

If you enable “Send me an email for every new post” in your account preferences, then you get email for your own posts, which doesn’t make sense IMO.

I’m using this setting as a forum moderator to know about everything that’s being posted.

Funny, because I was searching for the possibility to get notified of every message I post, for being able to reply to my own message by email :smile:

Maybe then an option “notify also by email my own messages” to tick could be interesting, so that we can choose if we want it or not…

Not a bug, this is by design, you can read previous discussions on the topic. Apparently people who use mailing lists expect this.
