Message Boards, Notifications - Email notifications are sent to the user who posted instead of the user who is subscribed


    • Fix Priority:
    • Sprint:


      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Start a mock SMTP server OR setup portal to use email
      2. As Test, add new user, User 1
      3. As Test, add the Message boards portlet to a page
      4. Navigate to Control Panel > Users > Users and Organization and make sure that both Test and User 1 have valid and separate email addresses
      5. Logout as Test, login as User 1
      6. As User 1, navigate to My Account > Notifications > Configuration and assert that the toggle to receive email notification is active
      7. As User 1, subscribe to the Message Boards root folder
      8. Logout as User 1, login as Test
      9. As Test, add a new thread

      Expected result: User 1 should receive an email since User 1 is subscribed and has a valid email address.
      Actual result: User 1 does not receive an email but Test does. Conversely, when Test is subscribed to the category and User 1 adds a thread, User 1 receives the email and Test does not.

      Reproduced on:
      Tomcat 8.0.32 + MySQL 5.6. Portal master GIT ID: 932acd72a43a4933778b6ddfdfeeb05995fcafde
