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.
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.
