Emails from careers.stackoverflow.com tell me that someone sent me a message, but do not contain the content. I have to open the browser to view the message.
Why can't the mail simply contain the message the company sent me?
It probably can, with some extra work on our part. The primary reason now is that we want to encourage candidates to reply to a message sent, even if that message is negative (Not Interested). The short way to do that was to get people in app to make that choice.
I do recognize there are ways to do this directly from the email client in most cases, but it's a bit harder.
We'll look into this more when we get some messaging features in the schedule.
