Confirm your email if you would like to use this feature.

Enotif (email notification) is an addition to MediaWiki that allows you to receive an email if your talk page is edited, or if a page on your watchlist is edited.

For detailed documentation, please consult Enotif help on mediawiki.org.

Enotif gives you the option of being notified by email of edits made to pages on your watchlist. You can also choose to be notified by email when you have new messages on your user talk page.

To use Enotif, add an e-mail address in your preferences, confirm that e-mail address, and enable the option in your user preferences. If you enable Enotif in your preferences, you will receive a single e-mail when a watched page, or your user or talk page, is edited. You will only be notified once per page, even where multiple changes are made between visits (i.e. you get an email on the first edit by someone else after you viewed the page). You won't be notified of changes you made yourself. You can choose whether you want to be notified of all changes, or only non-minor ones.

Recent changes and your watchlist will highlight pages that you are watching if they have changed since you last visited them. A link to the difference between the version you last saw and the current version is provided. You can disable this option in your preferences.

The text of the notification email can be changed by any admin on the wiki by editing MediaWiki:Enotif body and MediaWiki:Enotif subject in the MediaWiki namespace.

Other email featuresEdit

As well as being notified of changes by email, you can send email to other users via the wiki. This feature is already available, and can be disabled in your preferences if you do not want to send or receive email. To email another user, go to their user or talk page, and click the "email this user" link. If they have chosen not to receive emails from other users, you will be notified of this. You do not need to disclose your email address in order to receive email. When you send an email, you own email address will be shown to the receipient.

Email notifications allow you to receive an email when a page you are following is changed.

Options in user preferences related to email notifications

How do I enable email notifications?

To use email notifications, you need to add an e-mail address in your preferences, confirm that e-mail address, and enable the options you desire in your user preferences.

How many emails will I receive?

That depends on which options you choose. Email notifications can be configured for both social/communication features and content monitoring.

Communication features

If you select "E-mail me when my user talk page is changed," you will receive emails when others are trying to contact you via your talk page. You can choose to receive an email every time a message is posted on a Message Wall or Forum thread you are following (including threads on your own Message Wall). Or you can choose to receive only one email per thread since your last visit, so you won't get an email for each new post.

Email notifications about replies to a followed Discussions post will be sent once every 24 hours, or until the recipient visits the post.

Content Updates

If you select "E-mail me when a page I'm following is changed", then the volume of mail depends on how many pages you have on your watchlist, and how active other editors are on the wikis where you are following pages.

You will receive a single e-mail whenever a followed page is edited. You will only be notified once per page, even where multiple changes are made between visits (i.e. you get an email on the first edit by someone else after you viewed the page). You won't be notified of changes you made yourself. You can choose whether you want to be notified of all changes, or only those which are not marked as minor edits.

The email will provide a link to the article, and also a direct link to the difference between the version you last saw and the current version.

Followed Pages Digest

You can also choose to receive a weekly digest ("E-mail me a Weekly Digest of changes to my followed Fandom pages"). This is a weekly email that will inform you of any changes to pages you are following that you haven't visited yet. It's a great reminder for those important pages that slip by on occasion, or if you have a large number of followed pages.

How do I unsubscribe from all emails?

To unsubscribe from all emails, select the last option in your email preferences: Disable all emails from Fandom (overrides all other options). Once you select this and save, all other options will be deactivated.
