mention myself -- no email notification

We've been having issue with mentions not going out, so to test this, I tried to mention myself in a comment. I did not receive an email.

 

Under "Email Settings", I have "Notify on my actions" checked. Does this not apply to mentioning oneself?

 

I have verified that if someone else mentions me, I do receive an email notification.

We indeed do not include the mention author as a notification recipient.

Perhaps that only makes sense if "Notify on my actions" is not checked.

This is a controversial approach, isn't it?

By example, I write down some notes in a specific wiki page during a Sprint Retrospective. I notify all participants, including myself, so everybody receives an email to check later these notes. In that case, I do not receive any email, is that right?

That is right, mention authors are not included in the mention notification recipients set
