I can't tell if email responses to email from postings on this forum are supported or not. The emails don't say, and there's no error if I do, but the responses don't seem to show up. And I can't find an effective way to search on the point within this forum; for all I know, it's been answered, but if so, I don't see it.
So... are they? And why isn't it working, or why isn't the lack of support better documented?
Currently email replies to posts are not supported. This functionality will be integrated in the future. When they are supported the email notification will include a line that says something along the lines of "you can reply to this email to update the thread."
So, did it ever occur to anyone that either:
a) the emails should actually SAY "do not reply", or
b) if you DO reply, you should get a bounce messave saying it's not supported?
c) all of the above?
No? Nobody thought of that? Too subtle?
All of the above did occur to me, in fact. :) The trick is that those emails are system generated, so it'll take some custom coding to change that message. At this point, the integration of email will happen before I can get that custom coding done. :)
Hey, you get points for trying, Brendan!
But is it that hard to generate a bounce email reply?
Works great for me! Must be Ken's fault! :-)
