Not exactly a bug... emails "failed job"

Post by diamaunt » March 8th, 2018, 8:36 pm

I'm using SABnzbd version: 2.3.2, and there's an annoying aspect of a fairly new feature.

On duplicate detection, if I tell it to "fail job (move to history)" then it emails me "failed job" for each duplicate that it skips.

I'd *prefer* not to get any notification at all, my whole reason for setting it to fail was to not have the queue fill up with dupes, and also to not even see them, but still be able to go ahead and re-run them if needed (which is rare).

I realize it does say "fail" but... it's not a failed download that needs attention, and that's what I'd think should be generating emails.

Yeah that's a tricky one just as you describe, fail=fail so it needs an email..
