How to disable emails for a particular user? Edited

Hi,

We have a Python tool/script that logins to Jira as a particular user via the Python Jira APIs.
When the tool updates various Jira fields as that particular user, emails are NOT sent out. This was achieved by modifying
MailListener.java to NOT send out emails made by that particular user. This has been working fine until
we installed EMQ (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.thepluginpeople.jira.emq/server/overview).
With EMQ, any field changes made by that particular user result in emails being sent out (undesired behavior) because EMQ uses its own emailing mechanism.

However, we noticed that if we use Bulk Edit/Operation and uncheck the checkbox "Send mail for this update" in the Jira
UI, then emails are NOT sent out.

Is there any way to achieve the same behavior of Bulk Edit (do NOT send emails) in our Python code ?

Thanks
