No.  You can make Git send e-mails on commits using its mechanism
called "hooks" (read the githooks manual page) but hooks are just
scripts calling low-level Git commands to extract the relevant info and
then mailing it somehow (usually assuming a POSIX-like OS).

So it's not like you tick some checkbox somewhere and Git magically
starts sending mails anywhere.

You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git 
for human beings" group.
To unsubscribe from this group and stop receiving emails from it, send an email 
to git-users+unsubscr...@googlegroups.com.
