re: my Watching@bugzilla begins

I have watched a few days (almost a week) but I got nothing. I must have done something wrong. I log back in Bugzilla and check my “Preferences”-> “Email Preferences”

User Watching: That looks ok….I have the name/address

Field/recipient specific options: Oh no, I forgot the check on “CCed”, silly me. Anyway, problem solved

I received 6 emails in an hour from regards a bug on Unix & Windows.

I am able to see the conversation between the person who I am watching with others. Watching is a great tools to get to know a person work and his/her involvement in the bugzilla. I just wish there is some kind of tool out there that help me filter/organizes these emails.

for example: only the messages which includes the word “locale; en-GB; en-CA; python; etc” are being forwarded to avoid information overloading.

maybe a “search mail function” that go though all the emails in the mailbox, so that only the mail with the given word will show. Oh wait, Gmail has this already.
