Watching without email notification


I do not want any e-mails from Confluence, however I do want to use the notifications panel.

All the options in the e-mail settings are disabled, but I only can stop watching things, but then I lose the notifications.

Why is a simple thing like this not possible?

Most email clients have some mechanism for setting up email rules. You could setup a rule to delete the emails when they come through.

Yeah, I know but that is not really the most elegant solution..

It is really the only way to do it. When you watch a page/space/person you are telling the system you want emails when content is updated.

No, I'm telling the system I want to watch it...The way I am notified of changes is a different thing!

there is a suggestion ticket for that:

Maybe you want to vote for or discuss the issue there.
