I didn't get a single e-mail notification from the auto-resolve01 nonsense. I should have received hundreds, since I watch, amongst many others, email@example.com, and have my mail settings set to get mail when a comment is made. The mails didn't get filtered by gmail's spam filter. I have "The bug is in the unconfirmed state" unchecked in my mail settings, because I was told it was the source of my getting mails that did not have comment changes (which is basically all I want to receive). Is that why I didn't get these mails? If so, is there a way to receive notifications from comment changes, new attachments, and when I'm added or removed in any capacity, regardless of the state of the bug?
Hmm, I have all "The bug is in the unconfirmed state" checkboxes unchecked too and I just realized I don't get ANY notification of new filed UNCO bugs and possibly no bugmail from their changes either. :( So, without looking actual code, this would suggest that for UNCO bugs there's only a yes/no flag. Either you get all bugmail or you don't get any for them. Other checkboxes only affect non-UNCO bugmail. Note that emailflags rewrite has changed this somehow. There's bug 289593 open for issues raised from it.

I don't know who told you that first sentence (and I hope it wasn't me!); the UNCO checkboxes, when unchecked, suppress mail from UNCO bugs to which you have the given relationship (as I hope is clear from the name). > If so, is there a way to receive notifications from comment > changes, new attachments, and when I'm added or removed in any capacity, > regardless of the state of the bug? Sadly, no. That would require the UNCO checkbox to be a column rather than a row, if you see what I mean. If you need more serious filtering, consider enabling all UNCO mail and doing it client or MTA-side, using the X-Bugzilla-Reason header. Gerv
All I want is all mail from people adding comments to bugs (including when they add comments at the same time as attachments), and notifications of anyone making a change that would mean I didn't get notifications of future changes. That's all. I don't see any sane way to do that with GMail filters, but it really should be possible for Bugzilla to do that for me. I don't want notifications of dependency chain changes (which I do get at the moment), nor do I care what state the bugs are in (why on earth does the UNCO row even exist if it is going to override everything else?). The above is basically what I had described when the whole bugmail filtering idea was originally floated, all those years ago. Is there no way to make this simple request possible? I can't imagine I'm the only person who wants this, I'd imagine _most_ people would in fact want what I describe here.
(Something else I don't really want is notifications that another bug has been marked as a dupe of a bug -- we only get that today because it is implemented as a comment change.)
That one you can definitely do with client-side filters - the form of the comment is pretty unique. Gerv
Is there anything left to actually do on this one?
Not really. We've determined that Hixie's lack of email in this case was not a bug. If Hixie would like specific changes to the Bugzilla email preferences system, I'm sure he's able to file a bug requesting them :-) Gerv
