Thanks @julian ! 🙂
If I got it right, the plugin nodebb-plugin-category-notifications could solve my issue.
I'd get the result I want if each admin/mod subscribes to all categories, right?
How do you set up email on nodebb? I installed nodedb-plugin-emailer-local, but it doesn't seem to work for V 0.5.2..

Can you be a bit more specific? We're usually quite good at diagnosing issues, not so good with Clairvoyance.
Required info, what have you tried? Any errors when running
./nodebb log or
To take the ease of your server, I'd recommend looking into emailer-mandrill, as they give you a free 12,000 emails per month.
After I activate the plugin and click on Emailer (Local) from the intstalled plugins menu I get a 404:
You seem to have stumbled upon a page that does not exist. Return to the home page."
No errors in the log, but there was this warning:
warn: [plugins/nodebb-plugin-emailer-local] "callbacked" deprecated as of 0.4x. Use asynchronous method instead for hook: filter:admin.header.build
./nodebb dev gave me this warning:
warn: Route requested but not found: /admin/plugins/emailer-smtp
@aii the same question I met.looking for help, too.
Follow these steps to get it working
go to extend > plugins
look for Emailer (Mandrill)
install and activate plugin
go to mandrill, generate and copy api key
go to your nodebb > installed plugins > emailer (mandrill)
paste api key and click save
To test email, go to settings > email and then click on send test email
Use the local emailer plugin under the NodeBB name:
npm i nodebb-plugin-emailer-local
So things have changed and now mandrill is shutting down. What emailer alternatives are there?
I recommend SendGrid
We support many via plugins, sendgrid, mailgun, mailjet, postageapp...
