When we started with Confluence, it was possible, to create a new user, leaving the fild 'Email' open.
Now since some releases, it is not possible anymore, to create a user account without any Email-adress.
We have a lot of users who do not have a company email adress. The problem is, that if we enter a dummy adress (firstname.lastname@example.org), users who are sharing content or mentioning a user who does not have a proper adress, always get an error message from Confluence per Mail.
One solution, I personaly do not like would be, to enter the private email adress of the users.
Is there a possibility, to turn of the mail-error messages?
Could you think of changing the user definition, so that it is possible, to leave the Email-field empty? An if the field is empty Confluence could recognize this and tell the user who whants to mention somebody that the speciffic recipient does not have any email adress.
What do you think?
One solution I can think of is disabling the email notifications.
Also, I did never experience the error messages, only in the confluence logs, there were bugs of sending am email to dummy user.
Another option - create dummy account on your mail server and purge it daily :-)
