Me Too!!!

Solution for me: set a filter in ThunderBird and move it to trash automatically

I can confirm - it appears to send me all pas2js note notifications despite my never monitoring them.

Yes - I added myself to monitor this particular thread. I also monitor others, but not the pas2js ones ever.

+1 - Not a big deal though, I just automatically delete email related to pas2js.

Over the past few days I've (again) received a number of Mantis emails for bugs I'm not monitoring:

* (x4)
* (x2)

To Free Pascal Mantis Admin:
- from the Mantis Bug report at

You can enable e-mail logging to find out why Mantis is sending notifications

In the last 3 days again I received 5 Mantis emails for bugs which I am *not* monitoring:

 - (3 mails)

Of course I want to monitor *other* bugs which I have entered, so I cannot disable *all* Mantis emails.
I get those uncounted *unwanted* Mantis emails since January 2018!
I can't understand why Mantis admins are not able or not willing to stop this after such a long time.
This is very *annoying*.

same here as Hartmut tells :-)

I got the same advice from MantisBT as Trevor Roydhouse tells above, some month ago.

"You" (the admin of this forum) " can enable e-mail logging to find out why Mantis is sending notifications"

So seems to be a configuration issue?!!
