I previously set to receive these before unsubscribing:

[x] Announcements
[x] Check-ins
[ ] Ticket changes
[x] Wiki
[x] Daily digest only

I just got 50 exactly same "[fossil-src] activity alert" emails
describing 5 check-ins in three minutes. What's happening to the server?

Besides the mail server problem, this subject is too general. Something
like "Daily digest: 5 check-ins by drh[, usera, userb]" is better.
