      This issue introduces a new system setting. As such it requires a version increase to get that setting picked up. The version I've got in version.php may not be the version the integrators ultimately use. It just needs to be a version above whatever you currently have in your version.php to get an upgrade to run.

      After the upgrade has run to go My profile settings > Messaging and check that the email address box is available. Its towards the bottom of the page.

      As an admin search for the new setting in the Settings block. It is messagingallowemailoverride. Untick it and save.

      Go back to your messaging settings and check that the email address area is gone.

      Retick the settings and save. Reload your messaging settings and check that it has returned.

    Description

      We had a lot of confusion due to the fact that moodle sends forumposts and messages to different eMail addresses.
      Reason is the possibility to define eMail address in two different places

      • user profile
      • settings of messages

      I don't understand the reason for this so I assume this is a bug

      It would be very nice if:
      1) there would be only one place to define the EMail address
      or
      2) there would be a flag in the rights management where could be specified if these addresses should be synchronized or not.
