Default setting for forum email frequency

It would be useful to have a global setting for the default forum email frequency -- immediate or weekly. If this is not feasible I think that the default should be weekly. Many members object to
receiving too-frequent emails.

    I would like to see this per-forum, but I'd gladly take a global default setting.

    I would prefer the option to set the default to whatever you want. Our club prefers immediate as a default so it would be great if the default could be customizable

    Evgeny mentioned that this is "very easy to change" - so perhaps this item could be combined with one of the other forum-related changes that are farther along in the process - e.g.,

    - Managing email subscriptions to forum updates (for which this issue is relevant because people will unsubscribe if the default frequency doesn't match the nature of the forum)

    I'd like to see the default set per forum by the Administrator.

    In our case, we have a News & events forum that should be set to immediate, and a bunch of Project forums that would best be set to weekly.

    For both Administrator and Member, it would be good to have a "Select all" option and then allow individual deselections.
