Posting to multiple groups via email
I'm not sure whether this is a bug or not, but when I post to multiple groups via email, I now receive an email notification for each post of the same message. I'm guessing that that's how it's supposed to be because it's too complicated for the system to recognize these as cross-posts (and the removal of that check is likely what allows that functionality in the first place, which again, I love!), but I wanted to check in to see whether this was expected behavior, as it is different from how posting to multiple groups works via posting to the web forum.

This is expected behavior since we didn't want to use a complicated syntax to emulate the Multiple Forum post feature from the frontend. Removing the duplicate topic check was the easiest way forward. This is discussed in the previous ticket. See https://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/issues/13136#note-2, https://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/issues/13136#note-4 and https://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/issues/13827#note-13.
We probably do not want to explore the complicated syntax since not many people would be using it and would take dev time that could be better utilized elsewhere.
