Replying to emails


(Cole) #1

If I reply to a email from a discourse forum will that reply go into the discourse topic or will it get sent to whatever email it was sent from?

The answer will vary a bit… was it a digest email? (no, it won’t get posted) from a watched topic or are you in mailing list mode? if the latter two, it should post as a reply.

In-line or bottom posting doesn’t do all that well, but support is improving.

Tell us more about your question?

In discourse is there a reply-by-email thing or do you have to visit the web to reply?

Sure - look at the admin settings:

There is even an “email in” option you can configure on a per-category basis (which may be a bit too much for most scenarios, but it’s there). All you need is a POP3 inbox which is capable of subaddressing.
