I’ve found this topic, but it’s auto-closed with no real resolution other than “don’t worry it’s easy”. Particularly, there’s no apparent guidance on three topics:
- creating new topics via email
- the perhaps-surprising preference where email isn’t sent if you’re active on the website
- commands like +1 via replies — apparently a thing?
I have users asking me for the docs on this, and to my surprise I can’t find anything official. I found several decent guides at various forums:
- RIOT forum as a Mailing list - Meta - RIOT
- Interacting with Discourse via email - Site Feedback - GNOME Discourse
- How do I use Discourse via email? - FAQs - Mozilla Discourse
but they’re all kind of site specific — for example, referring to this custom plugin which I can’t run on a hosted site. Rather than each writing their own, I think there really should be a user-facing document. Thanks!
