Import Previous Emails

planned

(Yoav Nordmann) #1

Is there a way to import older mails into discourse which hold discussions.

I have a lot of chain mails which contains valuable Q&A sessions. I want to import all of this data into discourse and make it searchable.

All of the mails or on gmail.

Thanks for the help

If you can get the email into an mbox file, you can use this importer.

How, you might ask? HOWTO: Import MBOX (mailing list) files.

Note, this is a feature we really want to get to. “Forward long email chain to Discourse and have it untangle it, staging users and creating multiple replies”, unfortunately it is a devilishly hard problem. We hope to make some progress here in the next 12 months.

@YoavNordmann & @Cozdabuch, if you could send me (regis.hanol@discourse.org) some (< 10) of these email chains I would truly appreciate it. :+1:
