Send email to a mailing list when a new issue is created
I need the ability to notify a full team (via an email mailing list) whenever a new issue is opened. I couldn't find any settings that would meet these needs in redmine. If I set my notifications to 'for any event on all my projects' I get too much email, but the team needs to be notified of all new issues. I have searched the web and can't find any plugins compatible with 3.2 that add this functionality.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can use existing mail notification functionality.
Users can set Email notifications level on My account page to value Only for things I am assigned to.
Activate Allow issue assignment to groups Redmine setting.
Create Issue Categories for each project, and set group as Assignee for each category.

Thanks so much for this feedback! I think using your suggestion I can get this working. It would be a bit easier to have a plugin or built in setting that allows a project wide email address which will be notified whenever a new issue is created. I don't believe a plugin would be that difficult implement using the existing redmine hooks.
For now, I will try to get this working with your suggestions.
