I couldn't help but notice that there is a Mailing List Mode under preferences. Once enabled, a drop-down appears (frequency of emails). I set that to 'send an email for every new post' and I was on my way! Perfect!
Now, for those that are part of the team, should be informed of this option. Joining Google Groups forced this one me and therefore was turnkey for me to be a part of everything. Now, we can't just have it on by default, the lay person doesn't want that, but I wonder if there is a way (plugin?) to send an invite link with the option enabled by default. Or would we just have to be particular about telling new recruits to enable it?
Secondly, Anyone know about ignoring threads? Or creating threads that don't email people? (Like me ignoring Sandbox thread, or me creating the Sandbox thread with no alerts so people don't have to ignore it). I don't know if anyone saw anything. Let me know!
