I think many users are aware of the problem with Global Email Settings. They just do not exist and the only way to avoid email spam is that each user deactivates the email settings in their own profile. With 500 to 1000 users this is not really a good option.
We use Confluence 6.8.2 (Server) and Comala Worklows 5.4.1.
The only mail traffic we need is from the Comala workflows. However, the workflows can only send emails when the mail server is set up. So I am trying to find a way in which any Confluence Notifications is disabled via email except for the workflows.
To achieve that, I have the following idea:
I set up the mail server and completely disable the Confluence Email Notifications plugin. As far as I know, the plugin ensures that mails are ever sent as soon as something happens in Confluence.
Thus, Comala Workflow has an active mail server and nobody feels disturbed by the many mails from Confluence itself.
I am not sure if this plan works and I thought I could ask the community in advance.
Has anyone tried this before or has experience disabling the Confluence Email Notifications plugin?
