Is it possible to get email notification if somebody posts in a topic you're tracking?

Currently not, but it shouldn't be too tricky for us to add.

There's an issue here that mentions it: https://github.com/flaskbb/flaskbb/issues/335

And an old plugin which can supposedly do it, though the plugin API has since changed so I doubt it works anymore. I've had a bit of hands on experience with writing plugins already so it should be doable.

Alright, I got it working!

You can now enable email notifications under Settings -> E-Mail & Feed Settings

You can opt-in to receive emails for tracked topics. You can also set it to email you for every single post on the board(s) of your choice.

Additionally, upon saving you get a personalised Atom feed, which you could use instead of email if you prefer.

The only problem is, it currently doesn't support sending emails for DMs. I tried to get this working but my Python/Flask/SQLAlchemy skills aren't good enough right now. :(

Also, this hasn't been thoroughly tested, so please give me a shout if you run into any issues!
