Mailing lists understand this concept, I think Bugzilla should too. Have a feature in prefs, if turned on Bugzilla will send you exactly ONE (1) email every day or week or month (whatever time you have it set to repeat). With *all* your bug updates. This way I can get all my bugzilla updates in ONE email! wow, now that just turned my spam from 10 emails a day to ONE. ;) UI would be something like this: ( ) Turn on digest mode [ ] daily [ ] weekly [ ] monthly
woops wrong component!

I'm hesitant about this, I think that we should just try to reduce unwanted email. If we do something like this, we should have some sort of concept of priority embedded into the email notification prefs so important messages will be sent straight away.

I'm voting on this one. I, for one, am tired of getting 15 different comments on one bug, when I'm just going to click on the damn bug page anyway :P It would be nice to get one e-mail a day telling me which bugs have new comments, and give me URLs for each.
Sorry about the spam (how ironic), but I think the priority system could be based on the type of message. The UI could be this: Digest mode: [Off ][v] [Daily ] [Weekly ] [Monthly] Mail me a digest on: [./] Contact changes of mine [./] New Comments [./] New Attachments [./] Priority, status, severity, and milestone changes [./] When the bug is resolved or verified [./] Keywords field changes [./] CC field changes [./] Any field not mentioned above changes ./ = a badly-contructed ASCII checkmark IOW, this would have the same checkboxes at the other fields. Another option (and more useful one) would be to put the digest mode option on ALL of the former checkboxes, like this: When I'm the Bug Owner, email me: [Immediate][v] When I'm added to or removed from this capacity [Daily ][v] New Comments [Immediate][v] New Attachments [Immediate][v] Priority, status, severity, and milestone changes [Immediate][v] When the bug is resolved or verified [Off ][v] Keywords field changes [Monthly ][v] CC field changes [Weekly ][v] Any field not mentioned above changes In that fashion, people who are bug owners can have more immediate e-mails than people who are just looking at another bug. I'm sure this idea would be somewhat of a coding nightmare (I know how it is, guys :), but it would be a lot better in the long run.
Changing default owner of Email Notifications component to JayPee, a.k.a. J. Paul Reed (firstname.lastname@example.org). Jake will be offline for a few months.

I like the second proposal in comment #6. Except that monthly seems like an *awefully* long time.
OpenOffice.org has this feature in its IssueZilla although it is not very customizable. I am not sure how they implement it though. If you contact email@example.com, he/she might be able to inform you on how they do their digests.
Heh...is this too much of a nightmare to implement? (I could understand how hard this would be to code.) I sort everything into its own Bugzilla folder, but I still think this would be a highly useful feature, since most mailing list programs have something similar.
In reference to implementation, I'm almost sure that this sort of thing would require either a few text files (daily/monthly/weekly files with mail to send) or another table into the MySQL database. I would prefer the text files route, since you don't need something as complex as a database if you have all of the mail in a single mbox-type file. This would also require a few crontab entries to send out the mail. Get a seperate program to send off the mail file and then delete it. On that note, does sendmail support multiple messages in one session, or do you have to send them one at a time? Ugh...errr...I forgot about the whole digest thing being with one message. Gee, maybe using another table in MySQL isn't such a bad idea... BTW, what was with deleting the [RFE] tag? Has a frontend already been built, or was that just because it's not really needed?
Gmail's threading does this, in a way.
Kick all my Bugzilla bugs back to the component default owner.

(In reply to comment #12) Not really. Its not the same. I really want this feature though. (really, really want it :) )
