Forwarded mail gives original forward user access to post?

(Carlo Kok) #1

If I forward an email to discourse with the new forwarding on, and have a post like:

Did you see what this guy did here?

-------- Forwarded Message --------
Subject: Subject
Date: Thu, 24 Nov 2016 15:52:26 +0100
From: Someone

original post here.

Will this give the original user access to this post? (I think this is an oke feature if we email in when someone mails to the wrong place, but if another customer say forwards a private mail from someone, it might not be a good thing?

Yes it does. Otherwise “someone” would not be able to reply to that topic.

hrmm but this could be a security issue couldn’t it? leaking a post to the originally forwarded user, which wasn’t really part of the conversation? (Note that I do like the feature a lot, already using it extensively)
