XF 1.5 Group Conversations = Email Gets Spammed with Notifications


Well-known member
As the title says,
I believe you are aware that Xenforo keeps sending emails every time you are on a conversation, and someone replies, even if, you haven't even open the conversation for the first time.

This is a common complaint even between my users, that someone added them to conversation with several people, and they got their email spammed with notifications.

My question is, is there any way to deal with this? Conversations should send notification to email, but it really should send that much? Isn't it possible like with Threads, it only sends "X User has replied to conversation, there may be more replies after this"?

There isn't anything built in to prevent that. I can understand where you/they are coming from, though the conversations are roughly approximating email, so a notification is sent for each email.

Okay then, i hope on future updates something may be in mind to add a behavior to help that, specially in terms of send the email if the conversation is /unread.
Thanks anyway!
