    Moodle Emails

    Howdy all, long time no see

    Right, does anyone know how to turn off moodle emailing EVERYONE whenever a news item is changed on main page etc. I think personally I'd like to just disable as much of the emailing as possible!

    Thanks

    - Rob Emery

    This is a per user setting. It's up to them if they wish to get spammed to death or not.

    Well you can run an SQL query on the DB and disable it in each users settings.

    Generic comments like that point in the direction of a bot to me.

    Re: Moodle Emails

    Hi,

    You might want to try this:

    1. Go to a link similar to this one
    PHP Code:
    http://yoursite/moodle/mod/forum/view.php?f=somenumber&showall=1 
    "yoursite" = your domain
    "somenumber" = the id number of the forum

    2. Click the "allow everyone to choose" link.

    That should do it.

    Hope that helps a bit.

    I just stumbled onto this one again. Our zimbra is getting 18k email per day from the forums!


    Code:
    UPDATE mdl_user SET maildigest=2;
    for Default:

    Code:
    ALTER TABLE `moodle_database`.`mdl_user` MODIFY COLUMN `maildigest` TINYINT(1) UNSIGNED NOT NULL DEFAULT 2;
