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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
