Daily Digest option for Mail Notifications
We tend to have a lot of issues when using Redmine, and mail notifications are set to notify on everything. It would
be great for users to have the option to have a Daily Digest rather than immediate notification.
A Daily Digest is essentially an e-mail containing everything the Activity link shows, but is sent out only once daily.
However, if an issue is Assigned to someone, or if someone requests a Watch notification, those e-mails should always
be sent immediately, regardless of Daily Digest status.

I created a duplicate issue: #3412.
As an addition to this issue, I think it should be configurable how frequent you receive a digest (hourly, daily, weekly).
I also think is a good idea to group changes by issue. That way you can quickly see what happened with an issue.

Although all comments seem to be interesting, it would make a great difference if Redmine just provides an user option to receive a simple daily digest e-mail per project.
In the first version, I think it would be enough if this e-mail contained just a list of all changed issues with its number and subject (and a link). Since Redmine logs all changes, if one user is interested in a certain issue he could easily click on the link and see the latest changes.

Best would be to offer some time based rules, like daily at 8.00 pm , weekly every thursday at 3 am, every 3 days at 10 pm, immidiately..
..and some content based rules, like, a lists of all items with short deccription (only topic and link), or the whole ticket description plus the changes..

A big vote for this one, and agreeing with Luiz Carlos, the first step could be a very simple (digest or not digest and the only digest is once a day option), then of course all the other features are nice but to get going just a simple digest mode would be very handy.

I ran a digest task on my Trac projects for the last 5 years using a script I found and highly modified. Now that I'm switching to Redmine, I went looking for something similar.
Seems like enough interest that a plugin should exist already. Well, now it does: http://www.redmine.org/plugins/digest
I had not written (or read) a lick of Ruby code until last week, so improvement patches are definitely welcome.

Please also take a look at this solution/plugin. Instead of daily digests this plugin has more intelligence to notify you of 'issue-risks' up front.

From what I've seen the available plugins are either of poor quality or simply incompatible, etc. So I decided to do it on my own. Unfortunately (?) I'm no Ruby expert so I just wrote some shell scripts to query the data directly from the DB. Here it is:
