    In response to:
    It would make sense to check if people are coming back to the conversation or not. Otherwise people will quickly mark it as spam, which if it occurs more often it easily leads to the website getting blacklisted as a spammer. After which emails stop arriving.
    With the awesome addition of bounce functionality in XF its a shame if websites get blacklisted none the less.

    So my suggestion is to limit the number of emails that users get by checking if the emails result in users coming back to the content / site.
    If emails are not pulling users back to the site then they should not receive a mass of emails.

    Yes indeed. On our website group conversations are usually common and every day i get like 10-30 emails from my website about conversations when i wake up. One of my worries is indeed users possibly marking the emails as Spam to avoid being flooded with them again.

    So, thumbs up!

    Yes! If you're running a big board and using CSF you'll have lfd sending out regular LOCALRELAY alerts on default settings because XF will be sending out tons of conversation emails on a regular basis.

    This suggestion still lives? We run Amazon mail servers and the Xenforo spam of daily notifications per conversation reply is costing quite some money by now.

    Wondering if anybody has one alternative or suggestions to mitigate this annoyance?

    I'm planning on doing something about this with an add-on sometime around February/March depending on scheduling.

    No sorry. Perhaps late March, but I'm unsure if I can meet that due to other commitments.
