I am working on sharepoint 2013 discussion board, the scenarios is when ever any user replies to a discussion, an email is sent to the author. I have checked there is no workflow associated with the discussion and no alerts are defined.

I know this is not an OOTB option, or may be I am wrong, what other options are available to send notification to the author on a discussion board.

Thanks, Moss

If high authority person has set alert, it will not show in Manage Alert of Discussion board list.

To see alert,

  1. Go to Site Settings > User Alerts.
  2. Select user from dropdown Display alerts for
  3. Update it

Now check here is any alerts for discussion. If yes, remove it. enter image description here
