Re: Strange behaviour with followers and e-mailsby
OK Martin, so a possible solution would be modifying invitation email templates for the followers, clarifying that they belong to a "group" and all of their answers will be visible. Also, a "private" email address would be suggested, too.
Thanks again for your answers,

When I reply to a github email notification, it will post a message in my name to every follower of an issue. I don't think it's an issue, a lot of softwares do the same. However we don't send email "in the name of someone who didn't authorize it" as you sent the email to catchall in the first place. Keep in mind that email is not a very secure technology and easily forgeable (but that's another issue...) -- Martin Trigaux Odoo (Formerly OpenERP) github.com/mart-e Chaussée de Namur, 40 1367 Grand-Rosière Tel: +32 81 81 37 00 https://odoo.com
