Emails for all categories going to all users
First, I'm sorry if this has come up before. I did do a search in the forums and didn't find any others questions.
I have a forum set up with many categories. Each category has custom permissions to limit it to certain groups of users. I also had the "EmailSubscribe" plugin enabled. This worked fine until last week. Something changed and now, all comments/new discussions are emailed to all users, whether they have permissions to view that forum or not. If they click on the link in the email to a forum they do not have access to, they get a "Permission denied" message so I know the forum permissions are correct. I have disabled the "EmailSubscribe" plugin but it hasn't changed the behavior. I believe something got messed up in the database and the fix is probably a simple editing of a row in one of the tables, but I can't figure out which table or what variable. The code on the site did not change and I am using Vanilla 126.96.36.199.
Has anyone else run in to this? Any ideas on what may have happened? Any help appreciated.
