Watchlist notifications do not respect $wgEnableEmail = false
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I want to disable all email from my development wiki, which has some real data in it. Users have been getting emails for changes to pages on their watchlist.

I have $wgEnableEmail = false as the last line of LocalSettings.php

You have to set $wgEnotifWatchlist to false.

But on Special:Preferences the option is not shown, when wgEnableEmail is false, so there should not be send mails, when $wgEnableEmail is false and no need to set $wgEnotifWatchlist explicit. But $wgEnotifUserTalk seems to have the same issue.
