Why am I receiving these emails?

A user edited a wiki page, which sent an email to a user watching that page.  The user watching the page then replied to the email and then I received this email reply even though it was not intended for me. I did not create the page and I am not watching the page. I am a Confluence admin. How can I prevent this from happening and make sure others are not getting these emails as some of the email content is sensitive? Please advise.

  • If you are the Confluence admin, then you can see all content anyway. It doesn't matter that it is also sent to you by email.
  • In your Mail Server Configuration (search for this and you'll reach the administration page directly), you can define the reply-to email. You could set "no-reply@example.com", for example.
