I have a new discourse community starting up and we’re trying to support mailing list users as best we can.
A user has asked if they can respond to a public thread notification email privately, as a private message to the poster who made it. That word-soup sounds confusing so here’s steps:
- User A makes a new public thread on discourse
- User B receives an email notification of the new topic
- User B has two options
- reply to the email which makes a public response
- go to the discourse website and click the username, click message, and then type their message as a private message.
Is there a shorter, email direct way of achieving that last bullet point?
