      Description

      We have found that the included maillistener is sending out too many emails. E.g. if a developer changes the status of an issue from [Assigned] to [In Progress], he gets a mail himself teling about the change.

      I assume I can cirumvent this by making my own listener but it would be nice to have a simple matrix by which the email sending could be configured, e.g.

      There are three possible recipients of the emails: The reporter, the assignee and the watchers (those watching the issue).

      It ought to be possible to make a matrix where you could link which actions should e mailed to which recipients - as depicted below
