Mails and edited posts

I just noticed another problem using only mail. In this crazy thread Zero3K edited his last post and added the whole new paragraph. I've received only original post in the mail.

Sooo... I understand reason and don't see a good solution. New mail after every post edit? It could lead to JIRA-like spam. But this way mail-only use is limited and can lead to confusion. Disallow editing? It would work, but... Are there some settings regarding this?

    JIRA-like spam

    LOL! Now that’s a description that almost everybdev can relate to... and a situation that almost every dev would dread.

    Disallow editing?

    We can turn off editing, but that would seem an unreasonably harsh solution to fix an edge-condition. By the way, posters can only edit their posts within one hour after the original (based on our current settings).

    don't see a good solution

    Unfortunately, I don’t see one either.

    I appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention, however. So... thanks.

    I agree, too harsh. One hour seems as reasonable limitation, good to know.

    Thanks,
