To have email sent out whenever cards in a particular Set are added, configure "send" in the card's rules. By default, it will be a Pointer to "|that set|+email config", which you can then fill out with who the email should go to, its subject and message, etc.
There, you scroll down and click the radio button labelled 'All "event" cards' and Submit. You can then click to add an email configuration. See the example above.
When emails are sent, all configuration cards are restricted to the permissions of the user who last configured them. So that, even though most users cannot view +*email cards, an administrator can configure an email to use such cards, and then any user with permission to create the triggering card will be able to email to those users.
If you don't want these emails to be visible to end users, you can use the *bcc setting.
You can use contextual names to further customize your emails. Within each email configuration card, "_self" will be treated as referring to the card triggering the email. See +*subject and +*message in the example.
Is there a ticket yet to "digest" email notifications (like watchers)? Maybe this isn't the right place for this, but if the ticket doesn't exist, I'll create an Idea ticket for it. -- Gerry
You mean to incorporate notification (watcher) email into the flexmail system? There's no ticket for that yet.

There sort of is a ticket for what John's describing: convert system emails to flexmail system. There isn't a ticket for making digests possible, but I've got ideas about how that might work and will try to get that recorded now.
