Currently the weakest form of email notifications individual user can opt for is "Only things I observe or participate in". It would be nice to have also an option of "No notifications".

(/my/account screen, email notifications group)

And I would even like another level. As company owner I am the creator of 80% of the issues in the system - which means that I get notified of every change to every issue including internal state changes (developer to QC for example). I would like an email option that just told me when issues were assigned to me but not when issues I created change otherwise.

I currently receive over 100 emails from Redmine daily and so their value is diminished.

Both proposal make sens. The better should be that the combo box about notification would be replaced by a matrice of diffrent notifications, where user tick only what notif' he wants to receive (with a none/all speeder).

My +1.

A user of my Redmine installation could really do with this, and would be quite simple to implement I guess.

The "No notifications" option would solve my current problem, but the notification matrix actually makes a lot of sense and provides the best level of control.

I've created a patch that allows users to disable all mail notifications, maybe it could resolve some of the issues…

You'll gain a new option in "Email notifications" to chose that you'll never be notified.

Best Regards, Stephan

Wanted to give this issue a little poke.
We would really like to have this functionality and the fix seems pretty small. I'd rather not patch the core if I don't have to.

Since this was resolved in 1.1 (great!), maybe this ticket should get closed, right?

Indeed, silently committed with r4216 for version 1.1.0.
