      In a course with several groups, create a new forum and set groups mode to "separate groups". Force subscription and then post a message in one of the groups. Only the members of that group should receive the email but all students on the course receive it.

      Description

      When a forum is set to groups mode and users subscribe or are force subscribed they receive all posts rather than the ones relevant to them. For example, if "separate groups" is enabled then a student in "seminar group 1" should not receive posts submitted in the "seminar group 2" group. This can lead to emails considered to be spam; irrelevant=unsolicited=spam.
