Has anyone out there thought up a way so that when I get an email from jforum stating "Your forum topic has been updated", I can just reply to that email and have jforum add a response? Here are my thoughts:

* JForum could be setup to "poll" a pop3 account for emails. it would parse out the subject lines for the topic, and automatically append a response to that topic.
* When the response emails are sent out, clicking reply would send the email back to the jforum pop account.
* for security, each response email could have a "token" and when the email is sent out, it could include that token in the response's subject line.

I think this feature is along the same lines as what's talked about here https://coderanch.com/t/574861 . basically, the goal is to make interaction with the forum the least time consuming possible. although it's easy to click on a link and fill in a response through the web, it would be even "easier" to just click reply in my email box and type text in through there.

sure there might be limitations (emoticons, html, etc), but this feature is intended for the "quick text response" anyways.

It was already discussed on another topic. It will require integration with the mail server. An option is to use Apache James.

Hello
are you still considering to make this feature available?
That would make life of mobile users easier (and cheaper)

Tnx
