Having trouble with "Announce Topic" feature

Previous topic - Next topic


I just created a private forum for a board of directors.

Sometimes I notice when a new topic is announced thru email, it comes through as something like "A new topic has been posted on the forum" and then the email recipient has to go to the forum to read the post.

Mostly, though, the announcement comes through with the entire post in the body of the email. This is annoying because it entices members to just reply all and continue the conversation through email which reduces the effectiveness of the forum.

I have read through the manual and do not really see this difference being addressed.

Can someone help me figure out how to create a setting wherein the email announcement of a new topic does NOT include the full text of the post?

Thanks in advance.
