Multi-email accounts?

edited September 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hey, I'm wondering - any chance that more then one email address can be assigned to an account so that when the notifications extension is installed, it would send notifications to both email addresses?

Case where I need it: I am creating a client specific discussion, however I am doing it by whispering to a client. The client can only see that whisper, however - the client wants their assistant to also be able to access it. That's not an issue, since you can share the account info with eachother, however - they DON'T share the same email address. So, if they are waiting for an update or a message from me or my staff, only one would get the message and only one would have access to the discussion.

So - thoughts? Does that make sense?

    I'm thinking perhaps this would be better added on to the notifications extension (e.g. add a settings page per user for them to add other email addresses (could do with a verification link though or it might be abused)) than to vanilla itself.
    Alternative - get your client to setup a mail account which sent mail to both inboxes.

    Or define a rule to automatically forward these mails to the assistant.

    I suppose I could just create an email address for the account, and then forward that account to both. That would definitely be simpler. Ok. That works then. I'll talk to the necessary people.
