Q1. What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
Currently, when importing a password database (e.g from a .kdbx file) every imported password generates an email notification.
Q2 - Who is impacted?
Anyone who wants to import a password database, i.a. anyone who is migrating from another password manager.
Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
After the import is done the user will be spammed with possibly hundreds of “Password added” email notifications.
Besides the bothering nature of this it may also lead to SMTP server greylisting or other issues.
Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)
Notifications should not be sent when importing.
The whole reason for these email notifications is, as far as I understood, that the user has an (encrypted) backup for the added password(s). If importing from an existing database this is if course not an issue.
A potentially even better option would be to include a toggle for the notifications while importing. This toggle should be off by default and have a notice/warning message besides it about the possible implications when enabling.
