This might just be a personal failing, but I’m a bit confused by some of the error reporting I’m getting after setting up reply-by-email.
When someone replies to a message from an e-mail address not associated with their account, the error message (on a self-hosted Discourse instance) might be the wrong one? It seems like the message one should receive if they sent to an incorrect address, rather than from an unrecognized address.
The message I receive in that case has the subject line Email issue – Unknown To: Address, and the body looks like:
We’re sorry, but your email message to [“SNIP”] (titled Re: Help Please) didn’t work.
None of the destination email addresses are recognized, or the Message-ID header in the email has been modified. Please make sure that you are sending to the correct email address provided by staff.
Changing the From: address in my replies to match the one associated with the account seems to fix the problem.
Is there an easy way to modify this behavior? Have I misconfigured something?
(I should maybe say that what I would really be hoping for is an option to ignore the From: header altogether and instead just use the reply key as discussed here; is there any chance of that?).
