As a new topic can be created by pasting a link, I tried sending a message with a link in the Subject.
I was expecting the same behavior as with pasting the link, but the created topic was named after the URL, without a link.
I can think of a bad use case where anonymous emails are authorized with staged users, and spammers would send their click-bait URLs straight in. Otherwise, I think it would be nice to benefit from the automation of pasting URL to create a topic from a link via email. What do you think?
This email’s Subject is an URL. It should create a new topic with the title of the page at URL, and a onebox in the email’s body.
firstname.lastname@example.org a existing user
- OR the category accepts email from anonymous users (and creates a staged user)
Delivered-To: email@example.com From: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: https://splendid.example.com/ To: email@example.com
I found this article particularly enlightening. But what do they mean by 'splendid example'?
