Subject line in e-mail notifications

Post by KeithL »

Currently the subject line for e-mail notifications is pretty basic - New topic in "Mechanical" or Reply in "Mechanical" which means you have to look at each e-mail in turn to see what the actual topic is.

Can the system be configured to include the topic description in the e-mail subject line instead (or as well as)?

That's an interesting idea. I will add it to the list of requests and see what I can do for you.

I've just noticed that if the notification relates to one of your topics then the subject line does indeed contain the topic heading.

Oh, no it's not.

It looks like the subject line gives the topic description if you reply to someone else's post as well as well as if someone replies to yours.

I thought that all was OK, hadn't spotted your subsequent note. I'll add it back to the list.

Sorry, I thought might have been what happened.

To clarify, if you start a topic and someone responds, or if you respond to someone else's topic, then the subject line includes the topic description. Otherwise you just get the name of the top level forum.
