Non-member email posters have to be manually activated for mailing list mode to work

(Paulo Lieuthier) #1

Hello, friends. Even though it’s too damn heavy (of course that’s relative), Discourse is the best bet for community discussion software, especially with mailing list mode. I’ve been trying to set it up for an open source project, and it’s almost usable.

I’ve hit a wall, though. As a mailing list, I don’t expect users to sign up to be able to post a message by email and get replies. However, that’s what my tests show. I’m able to send a post by email from a non-member user and get the post delivered to the members. Replies to the post only gets to the sender if I manually activate him. Please, tell me I’m missing something ridiculously obvious.

Thanks for your time and for this project!
