Email Forum Responses, etc.

I was wondering if in future releases you would add an email option so that when someone replys to your post, their message is emailed to you in the email body. Currently I believe you must click on a link to see the response, but I think it would be great to see the response in the email body without having to relogin. Thanks.

There is a request for that in Jira. Then, yes, we want to add this feature in some future release.

It would be nice too to add the attachment(s) if any are present in the subscribed post to the email body notification.
That way the user can see the post and the attached files directly from the notification email without having to log on to the Forum.
It is very handy for blackberry users.

Thanks in advance for considering this request.
