hello,
Is there a way to set default settings for all users to receive email alerts when responding to a discussion?

Unsolicited emails are spam. Users can subscribe, or check the appropriate box when replying or posting. You could post an Announcement explaining to them how to do this. Also, depending on the number of users and the size of the forum, you could quickly run up against host-imposed email number limits.

thank you for your reply,
Yes, I know that the user can choose whether to subscribe or not, but you can't put the checkbox by default so that if one does not change it automatically subscribes? can always check it out if you do not want to subscribe. graces

You can use this extension to set the defaults for new users - viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2428976

I note that Notifications in the UCP only are available for subscribed or bookmarked topics:

Code: Select all

Someone replies to a topic you have bookmarked		
Someone replies to a topic to which you are subscribed		
Someone quotes you in a post		
Someone creates a topic in a forum to which you are subscribed
So even if you could force the Notification setting, the user would have to be subscribed or have bookmarked the topic.
