Is it possible to see Notifications on actions I create?

I automatically forward emails from my Gmail to a List using the "Email to Board" email address.

I am Watching both the Board and List.

Do I not get notifications because I am the one who "emailed to the board/list"?

I don't want to have to check those particular emails - I want them to go straight to the board/list AND get notified via Trello when that happens.

Is this possible?

Thanks! :)

@Dave Gambrill it's not possible to get notifications for actions you take, but you can set up a second Trello account, invite it to the board and then use the email to board address of that account to forward into the board. Since you're using Gmail already the simplest way to create this second account is by aliasing your existing address with +, so if your email is you can create a Trello account using, login as that account, copy the email to board address and then save that as your contact for forwarding emails in. It won't matter than you're forwarding emails from your main gmail account, what matters is that the email to board address belongs to a different user than your own, then you'll see the notifications

Brilliant! Thank you!
