Summary17259: Global setting does not seem to make sense
DescriptionWhan I fill in the "default site admin email address" and the "default site bounce address" they are not used when you make a new survey.

Please see settings images.

Expected behaviour: when "Default site bounce email address" and "Default site admin email" are filled in, they are filled in when defining a new survey. Now, when opening a new survey, the details of the user that defines a new survey are fuilled in.

So what are the default addresses for? When are they used. They seem to promise something that will never come true...

Default email : used when you are out of a survey

Default bounce : used when https://manual.limesurvey.org/Email_bounce_tracking_system#Setting_up_the_system Survey settings to Global

It's difficult to update without broke some system. Some user can think bounce is not used , update and bounce is used. You need to alert …

About Default email : i think 4.X have a good solution. And it's the 1st time we have an issue about that : Email shown on survey are clear enough.
About Bounce : i already think to have a plugin to use global bounce setting by default.

Is this more of a discussion than a bug report? Move to forum?

Leave it, it will stir up too much discussion now. But still I think it is weird that you need to specifically indicate that the bounce settings need to listen to the global settings.

In my idea: global settings are default, user can override.
