Server Administrator - Discussions

On a memoQ TMS, you can enable or disable discussions, and control which types of discussions are available, and which are not. In addition, you can turn related e-mail notifications on and off.

This is done here in the Server Administrator, under Group management. Select the group, and click Edit. There is a setting in the Group properties window.
