global notification mails to avoid double notification
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

currently de:wp sends mails like this:

‪Micha‬ hinterließ eine Nachricht auf deiner Diskussionsseite.
Nachricht ansehen ‪Micha‬ Änderungen ansehen

on every change micha makes on the talk page. it would be better that the notification mail is coupled onto the global notification indicator, and is deferred by, say, an hour or so. this would then avoid double notification mails and inform about everything.

This applies to watchlist emails, but the email here is an Echo notification email.

You can change it to send you daily batches ("Tägliche Zusammenfassung der Benachrichtigungen") at https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spezial:Einstellungen#mw-prefsection-echo .

I put Declined before since we removed a similar feature, but DannyB pointed out Invalid is better since there is a close-enough feature you can still use.
