Hi all, It has been brought to my attention that some find that they are receiving too much mail or other notifications from Phabricator. For those who are unaware there are numerous options available within Phabricator to allow you to control how much it notifies you of changes.
To customise the notices you receive, open your account settings (available from the dropdown menu beside your avatar in the top menubar, or at https://phabricator.kde.org/settings/) and select the "Email Preferences" section. You can choose to receive email, just receive an in-Phabricator notification, or receive nothing at all for the various categories provided there. In the case of mailing lists, Sysadmin also has the option of customising these for the list itself as well. Should people wish to have this changed please bring it up on the list itself then file a ticket once a consensus has been reached. Unfortunately Community Admins do not have the ability to change these settings. If you are receiving duplicate email for a project (because you are also subscribed to it's mailing list) then Phabricator also allows you to disable this by opening the Project, browsing to Members and selecting the "Disable Mail" option. If a large number of people find themselves needing to use the "Disable Mail" option then we may need to reconsider how we are currently setting up Herald rules (currently we subscribe the Project and rely on the mailing list being a member of the Project to send mail to the list - this also has the added benefit of looping the list in on changes to tasks without needing an additional Herald rule). Cheers, Ben
