We just launched our instance of Discourse on June 1st. Although we have asked members to Watch certain topics and can confirm that they have done so, many of them are not receiving emails for new topics.
- we have activated the Mailing list function but this sends emails for categories they are not watching.
- I can confirm they have the “Send emails even when I visit” option checked
- There is some indication that if we enable Mailing list mode, get emails, and then disable mailing list mode, things start working as expected. It’s hard to test thoroughly enough without spamming our users.
What else can we do to make sure members are getting emails for new topics in categories they are watching?
