So today, I realized our email was not configured in confluence, so I made that work. And then at 1pm, everyone in the entire company gets an email from confluence with todays updates.

Is this the job that caused it? scheduledjob.desc.summaryemail? Any way to tell if that is a system generated job or did a user create that?

Hi Brian,

From your last comment it sounds like you're hitting this issue - - suggested fix is to upgrade to Confluence 4.2.2 as it was fixed in that release (

Hope that helps?


Perfect that looks like it should solve it. Our helpdesk was not happy with me today. Thanks!

Thanks, Andrew!

Sorry for getting you in trouble with your helpdesk, Brian. We also got schooled by Atlassian IT when we accidentally shipped this bug to our internal Confluence instance. :-)

Don't worry, the developer responsible has been made to hang his head in shame.

You're running Confluence 4.2 I expect. The weekly email is sent to registered users on Thursdays at 1pm to provide an insight into popular content in your wiki. This is a new feature for 4.2. You can turn it off, or make it daily I understand, but you can't change the day or time as far as I can see. The admin screens provide you with access to these settings.

Is that the correct job to disable? Yes, that is exactly what happened, but our problem is confluence is tied to our active directory install through LDAP. So we have 50 real users of confluence, but 500 got an email about it today.
