    Hey All, thanks for your awesome plugin. I love the idea of having all my project management in WordPress and have purchased the Frontend view.

    The one thing I am missing is an ability to respond by email. Mostly for clients. They don't want to log in to reply… they want to reply in email. Any thoughts about how we might enable this? Maybe with another plugin?

    If I need to write this where would you suggest we start? Thanks so much!

    Reply via mail is a complicated feature, problematic for different servers. You can see the bbpress reply via mail plugin.

    So you are saying I could use this as a starting point for a plugin to allow reply by email? Okay.

    This is a huge one in my mind to really increase the power of a product. All the major project management tools allow folks to interact with them in many ways. I really want a complete WordPress solution and as far as I have been able to tell there is nothing out there that allows folks to reply by email. I can certainly set up a dedicated email to parse. That is so worth it if we can have something that will parse emails and put them where they need to go…

    Yeah, the reply via email plugin for bbPress could be a starting point. I had this feature in mind from the beginning. But it takes time to implement and never got that much time for it. It would be an awesome feature for sure and I've it in my todo list.

    Email parsing is a pain, but not that difficult. If you want, you can start it. If not, I'll start the development anyway. Not sure when, but I'll ๐Ÿ™‚
