I don’t quite get what options I have regarding emails and have a few questions:
- how do Discourse ‘Notifications’ and the emails sent relate? Is it possible to be notified on the site but not get an email?
- as I’m not sure yet if the forums are for me: Is there an option to get the old behaviour back: plain old mailing lists with plain text emails or is HTML mail the only option?
If you turn on mailing list mode, you’ll get emails for all notifications. (unless you’ve muted them)
There is not currently a plain text email list option, although I know it has been proposed as a feature for Discourse.
Thanks @Nicole_Jacque ! What if I have turned off mailing list mode, what will I get emails about? It seems one email per notification but can I switch that off/customise it?
You’ll get emails if you are private messaged or tagged – assuming you leave that enabled.
Plain text email should be a hard requirement.
