I know people hate thread bumpers, but for anyone who wants to self host their own mail server you can try mail in a box. Its free and open source easy to setup mail server.once you get it setup then you can just connect your smtp credentials and start sending mail with it. It should run pretty comfortably on a $5 or $10 vps. the advantage is you also get a fully functional email server so you can have staff email addresses and stuff.
Disable subscriber notification emails not working
I have enabled the following option in the email settings: "Disable subscriber notification emails" but i am still receiving emails when someone replies to a topic. I am using this in conjunction with the category subscriber plugin (so that i can get emails when a new topic is created) so i currently receive two emails (since there is no option in the plugin to just subscribe to new topics - it also emails on topic reply). I also disabled "Send an email when replies are made to topics I am subscribed to" in the user settings (admin page) but still get emails from the sustem on a topic reply.
I don't believe the category notifications plugin listens for that admin option, so that may explain why those emails still get sent out even if it is toggled disabled.
@julian Hi, sorry - what i meant is that the systems email notification are not disabled when i enable that option in the admin options. I didnt want both email notifications so i tried to disable nodebb's but it still sends it.. I ended up going another route - i edited the plugins code to not listen to the topic replies hook and just to listen to new topics. I just thought it was strange that even though it was disabled in nodebb, nodebb was still sending the email.
Or did you mean that since i installed the category notification plugin then the option in the admin panel will not work even for system email notifications?
The switch is not working for me.
I am just using the standard NodeBB forum features, no crazy plugins that are meant to affect the notifications. The switch does not work, and digests are going out...
