Email Settings

By default, the Gitea instance of Codeberg will send notifications to your registered email addresses.

Configuring all notifications

To change your notification preferences, go to your Account Settings or manually navigate to the settings page.

You can access it by clicking on the menu button “Profile and Settings...” in the top-right corner of Codeberg. From the dropdown, click on Settings, then click on the Account tab.

In the section “Manage Email Addresses”, you can select one of the following options from the drop-down menu for each email address that you registered with Codeberg:

Option Effect
Enable Email Notifications Enables all notifications (default setting)
Only Email on Mention Codeberg will only send an email to this address if your username appears in an issue or a comment
Disable Email Notifications Codeberg will not send any emails to this address

Press the button “Set Email Preference” to confirm your selection.

Note: Disabling email notifications does not mean that you will stop receiving important communication from the Codeberg organisation.

Issue notifications

As soon as you make a comment on an issue, you automatically subscribe to it. Unless you disabled email notifications for all your email addresses, you will get an email for every change and comment on that issue.

You can check and modify the subscription status under the “Notifications” section on the right side menu of the issue screen.

Watching repositories

When you watch a repository (by clicking on the “Watch” button in the buttons bar of the repository), you will receive emails for every change (creation of issues, pull requests, comments, etc.) done in this repository.

To unwatch a repository, simply click on “Unwatch” in the buttons bar of the repository.

Unfortunately, Gitea does not yet provide an option to list all watched repositories Gitea#16111.
