Dear Maurits,

finally Poi with your new code is running. It is doing exactly what I want, after an issue is created (only the responsible manager is notified via email). But during the creation of an issue, still all the track managers are notified via email). Also in this case only the responsible manager should be notified via email. I already tried to modify the code but without any success.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Something like this in in the getNotificationEmailAddresses method should do the trick (untested):

   if not self.getSendNotificationEmails():
       return []

   portal_membership = getToolByName(self, 'portal_membership')

   member = portal_membership.getAuthenticatedMember()
   email = member.getProperty('email')

   # make sure no duplicates are added
   addresses = sets.Set()

   mailingList = self.getMailingList()
   if mailingList:
       addresses.union_update([self._getMemberEmail(x, portal_membership)
                               for x in self.getManagers() or []])

   if issue is not None:
       manager = issue.getResponsibleManager()
       if manager:
           # Empty the current addresses.
           addresses = sets.Set()
           addresses.add(self._getMemberEmail(manager, portal_membership)
       ####### END OF EXTRA CODE
       addresses.union_update([self._getMemberEmail(x, portal_membership)
                               for x in issue.getWatchers() or []])


   return tuple(addresses)

Of course, changing the code of Poi directly is not recommended.  A 
monkey patch in a package of your own would be better, so you do not 
have to make the same change again by hand once version 1.2.9 comes out. 
  But changing the code directly may be the fastest.
