What happens if a post gets a gazillion comments? Do I get a gazillion emails?

Postmatic is smart about not flooding your inbox with email. We've built in comment throttling to be sure nobody joins a conversation and wakes up to 50 emails. Here's how.

  1. If comments on a post start to take off (in the order of 6 or more comments in an hour - but you can adjust this number) we’ll pause subscriptions for everyone involved.
  2. Instead of sending the 7th (and 8th, 9th, etc) comment we instead send a heads up email alerting the subscriber that things are getting out of hand so we are pausing their subscription.
  3. If and when the subscriber wants to jump back into the conversation they can reply to the pause email. We’ll then send them a summary of everything they missed. They can then reply to add another comment.

To access the settings for comment flood control, go to Settings > Postmatic, then click on the Configure Comments tab.
