    Hello,

    Please see http://wordpress.org/support/topic/no-email-notification-for-spam-comment .

    Please add a checkbox for the admin to decide if he/she wishes to get notification emails for comments marked as spam.

    In low spammed blogs this can be useful to release comments mistakenly flagged as spam.

    Thank you.

  2. Why? If you have a low spam site then don't use Akismet or other solutions that send spam to your SPAM box. Simply moderate everything.

    I think my views on this are the same as they were six months ago when that thread was posted. I can't see the point. If you want notification about everything, just don't bother with akismet and hold everything for moderation.

    That's a very bad attitude. It is not black or white and that's it. WP is known for it flexibility and simplicity - please keep it that way.

    Akismet is doing a nice job most of the time so it is good to use it and I sure don't wish to hold all comments for moderation, especially since akismet is doing a good job and most comments are legit.

    My solution is giving the admin a good balance. it is just a check box to get an email notification of a held comment, this is not rocket science to make an issue of.

    I can see your reasoning but I personally don't think it would be a good idea. Maybe a plugin could be made to do that.

    I first searched for a plugin for this and didn't find any. Only then I posted here.
    I really don't care how this will be solved - as a plugin or as part of wp, but since there is no plugin, I turned to wp.
