You can subscribe and unsubscribe yourself in WebNotify on each web. Please keep the list in alphabetical order so that names can be found easily.
 
Changed:

  • The frequency of alerts is set by the TWiki site administrator: it could be once a day, every hour, whatever works for the particular web.
    • On TWiki.org, alerts are sent once a day.
>

Format: TWiki handles entries in bullet list (<space><space><space>*) format containing the WikiName of a user; a WikiName with e-mail address; or a TWikiGroup. Examples:

  • Main.FredBloggs
  • Main.FredBloggs - secondary@home.com
  • Main.EngineeringGroup

The first entry is the default form, the notification gets sent to the e-mail address specified in the user's home page. The second entry lists an alternative e-mail address. The third entry specifies a group, the notification gets sent to each member of the group.

E-mail Alerts

The frequency of alerts is set by the TWiki site administrator: It could be once a day, every hour, whatever works for the particular web. On TWiki.org, alerts are sent once a day.
 

See SiteTools for information on how to setup the alerts.

Each g-wiki web does an automatic email notification of recent changes. Users can subscribe / unsubscribe themselves in WebNotify of each TWiki web.

Configuring Outgoing Mail

g-wiki will use the Net::SMTP module in case it is installed on your system. You need to specify the SMTPMAILHOST variable in DefaultPreferences.

You can use an external mail program like sendmail in case the Net::SMTP module is not installed. In this case specify the $mailProgram in twiki/bin/TWiki.cfg.

Call mailnotify at Regular Intervals

For Unix platforms: Edit the cron table so that mailnotify is called in an interval of your choice. Please consult man crontab of how to modify the table that schedules program execution at certain intervals. Example:
% crontab -e
15,45 * * * * (cd ~twiki/public_html/bin; ./mailnotify -q)
The above line will call mailnotify at 15 minutes and 45 minutes past every hour. The -q switch suppresses all normal output.

On Windows NT / 2000 you can use a scheduled task.
