Testing the new "post by email" feature

Just landed on agorakit, a post by email feature!

Each group has now an email adress shown on the group page only for group
members, and allows one to post by email and create a new discussion.

Later, we'll be able to reply by email as well.

Feedback welcome :-)

Questions that remain to be solved :

- shall we bounce emails for non member inviting them to join the group first?

- spam issues?

- filtering of email content, good enough ? (time will tell)

Nice! Some additional usability work and help text explaining this new feature might be good. See for example the link "Email a new link to this project" at the bottom of an issue queue and the resulting popup for how this is done on GitLab.

shall we bounce emails for non member inviting them to join the group first?

That sounds right.

I had to disable this feature for now here, because it seems there are still some bugs to be ironed out. I'd prefer to keep it of for now and have happy users than add frustration to the posting experience.

The post by email is back, now using imap so I can see what's going on in the email handling system. It's more robust now.

When it will work fine, I'll add reply to discussions by email too.
