Prevent my own email notification?

  • I’m a new WordPress user (I’ve used MT and pMachine in the past…still use pMachine for one weblog). I’ve opted to recieve email notification of comments posted to my site, but I’m surprised I’m getting my own comments emailed to me as well. This isn’t that big of a deal, at worst it’s annoying, so I searched around and was unable to find any info. I’m pretty sure I’m missing something very obvious and simple, won’t someone point it out?
    I’m running 1.2. In the options I’ve set the same email address in my profile as I have on the main options page, and it’s the same email address I’ve entered in the “email” box to post comments. I figured that WP would recognize me as admin and not notify me of my own posts. I haven’t been able to find any options in the WP interface, nor on the wiki, although like I said before it’s probably right in front of my face and I can’t see it. Help!

  • There should be something like that, but there isn’t. It would be fairly easy to do and, come to think of it, the same thing annoys me too. Maybe I’ll try to write something.

    But if you do this and someone posts a comment with your information…you won’t be notified…doesn’t sound like a good idea to me. :-/

    Suppose the comments know when you’re logged in to wp-admin? Other CMSs I’ve used didn’t email my own comments to me, so I know it’s possible. I’ve never had a problem with anyone stealing my identity, but then again I run a small personal blog that mostly friends read, so I’m not that concerned with that kind of security. And since comment author email addys don’t show up in the comments, I could always specify an address that others don’t know, ensuring that no one can pretend they’re me. I’d be interested in a hack that does this.
