Email Notifications

Post by adrian_sm » May 14, 2010 6:59 pm

Another forum I am subscribed to not only sends email notifications to subscribed posts, but actually includes the text of the reply from the post in the email.

I found this really useful, as you can immediately see the reply, without having to click through to the forum.

Is this just a setting in phpBB?
If so do people want it?

If it's a setting in PHPBB, I've never yet been on a PHPBB forum that used it. DIY Electric Car does what you're talking about, and I kind of like that.

But I have had enough problems getting all the email notifications from ES anyway, so I no longer use them. I just make sure there aren't any PM notifications or admin messages, and delete them in batch, and check the Subscriptions page
https://endless-sphere.com/forums/uc ... subscribed
periodically instead.

If there was a way to stay subscribed to threads without getting email notifications for them, but still get PM notifications and stuff, I'd prefer that, right now. :)
