I cannot believe this is not a dupe, but I cannot find it. Expected behavior: When I add an comment to a bug, I want to receive bug activities by e-mail. My memory is weak, but did it use to work that way? Problem: Nothing in "email settings" allows to choose options for "bugs I added a comment to". pi
There is a checkbox: > Global options: > Only email me reports of changes made by other people which, if unchecked, causes you to received mail about your own changes. Or are you expecting to receive mail about _future_ changes, too? That would be bug 7710.
You have detailed prefs already for when to receive email if you are the reporter, and you have the same prefs for the case that you are on the cc list. So, if you add yourself to the cc list of a bug everytime you comment on it, and you have your cc email prefs set to "comments" only, then it should do what you want. Or am I missing something? If I'm not missing something, then this is a dupe of 7710 because it will be solved as soon as that pref exists. I don't think that it makes sense to add another set of email prefs for people who have commented on a bug, but are not on the cc list or something. That's what the cc list is for: If you want to follow a bug, you should be on that list.

You people seem a little confused. It appears that the reporter is trying to suggest exactly what I was about to suggest, in which case as far I can see it's not really a dupe of #7710 but related to it. What I would like, and what I think the OP is asking for, is to have a "commenter" column added to "where my relationship to the bug is" in User Preferences: Email settings.
