      Must be tested on a system where email is enabled, and the sakai.properties are editable.

      1. Test with both properties on (default); ensure both user and admin receives email
      2. Disable user email property; ensure only admin receives email
      3. Disable both user email property and admin email property; ensure no one receives email
      4. Enable user property but leave admin property disabled; ensure only the user receives the email

      Description

      There is a sakai.property to control whether or not site creation notification emails are sent by the system (site.setup.creation.notification), which defaults to true. Currently, this single property determines if emails are sent to both the user who create the site, and the admin email address.

      However, some institutions may want more granular control of this behaviour. For example, institution A may want the email sent to the users who created the sites, but not the admin address. Institution B may want the complete opposite behaviour.

      The linked PR here introduces a second sakai.property (site.setup.creation.notification.user), which controls if the user creating the site receives the notification email, and the original property would only control if the admin email address receives the emails. This new property also defaults to true to preserve OOTB functionality.
