Hello Alex,

Could you please check if the user has enabled "Email notifications" (Profile -> Filters and notifications) and "Star" tag notifications (Profile -> Filters and notifications -> "Star" tag)?
If it doesn't help, please check if notifications could be sent correctly (Profile-> General Settings-> Email-> Send test email).

Thank you.

"Star" tag notifications - all inclusive.
Test message is sent and delivered.

Alex,

One more clarification - does the watcher's star under the issue yellow or grey? Yellow star indicates that notification status is ok. Need to exclude this variant and investigate the other causes.

Thank you.

A watcher is marked with a yellow star.
I'll describe the situation once again:
There are two projects in YouTrack. I'm the admin (admin1) for project1 and I made the administrator of another project (admin2) a watcher on a task from the project1. However, when the status of the task is changed, the admin2 doesn't receive any notifications.
admin2 doesn't have any rights in project2 and so he shouldn't.
The YouTrack version is 4.2.

Alex,

Your case is clear.
Please note that if admin2 has no permissions to view the issue or if the issue is in permitted group - he wouldn't receive notifications. Admin2 should be at least an Observer of the project1 and the issue should be visible.

Does the issue visible for admin2 and does admin2 able to see the changes made with the issue (not notified about the changes) ?
