Moodle forum and 60,000 email notifications
We have setup some rather large metacourses for entire year groups.
The students are being taught using the moodle forums feature.
By default, students are sent email notification on every post.
The result is 250 students (a yeargroup) each posting one message to 250 students
250*250= 62500 emails.
Although Zimbra coped rather well with this unexpected load, it would be preferable if everyone wasn't spammed for each and every posting.
I can set the mysql to
which sets everyones profile to only receive daily updates of subject posts, but any idea how I do this as default, or stop email notification of forums site-wide.
mysql> UPDATE mdl_user SET maildigest=2;
I want to keep emails generally though, as it's useful for messaging classes.
