Their move notifications show up as one email in the inbox, but with a figure indicating how many of my games are waiting for my move. I don't know if RHP's system allows introducing this way of notifying moves, but if so, I would like it to happen.
Merely for reference I can say that a number of us have been asking for change with regard to email \ 'personal message' notifications. For instance, if you're a member of a club that creates lots of tournaments, you'll find your inbox can be full in a few days. I've returned from short breaks only to be asked why I haven't responded to messages posted recently from individuals. I've missed them because of primarily these mass club 'tournament notification' posts, literally 'overwhelming' my inbox. 'Tick boxes' may be useful, something for which we could make preferences in a settings menu, whereby we can pick and choose just what, and where, we'd like to keep any notifications from.
Your 'QueenAlice' suggestion sounds like a sensible solution, most certainly with regard to keeping message numbers down, therefore on a more manageable scale !
