Is there a way to stop notifications of my own changes?

I get a lot of emails telling me about changes I just made. Is there a way to turn that off, while still receiving notifications if someone else makes changes?

FogBugz has a no self notification rule, so unless you modified the source code, FogBugz should not notify you of edit's that you made to cases yourself.

If your email address is multiple emails separated by commas in FogBugz that could be the issue.

I haven't modified the source.  And it's true I don't always get notified, but sometimes I do, for example I get emails like "A case which you opened has been resolved ( Resolved (Won't Fix) ) in FogBugz." even though I'm the one resolving it. 

This might only pertain to cases logged through the BugScout interface, and it may be because I'm using my email same address to satisfy the email address requirement for the BugScout virtual user I created.

Also I think it's when I forward to FogBugz an email I originally received directly to my external mail account, I'll end up getting notifications about changes made to it.  (Is there a better way to log those into FogBugz?  I'd rather have them set up in FogBugz as having come from the original sender, but I'm still trying to train customers to send requests to FogBugz rather than to me directly.)

In any case, I'm thinking the logic should be, if the email address of the notification target matches the email address of the FogBugz user triggering the notification, then don't send the email.  This doesn't seem to be the case.

That is the expected behavior.  It's scuttled by having multiple email addresses in the line, though.  We've not heard of this BugzScout wrinkle.  I'll contact you offline to see if this is a bug.
