Replying from an email notification...

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : December 6th, 2019-17:00
How is it done?  Hit reply and then what?  I tried every which way but I get a bounce.

The same happened to me when I was using an old email system

With my new email address I have no problems...
I will send you a PM as a test, please reply from email and via the WPSite PM inbox.


I can reply to PM's but not to notification of posts. [nt]

I received two messages in my WPS PM inbox

what ever you did worked... replying from the notification should work, but with some email systems (at some times) there can be problems. I always reply from WPS PM inbox as it's reliable... Let me know if you want to do more testing.  In a few minutes I will reply from my notification.  Casey

One was a reply to the email notification of the PM and the other was straight from the PM inbox. But, my question was how do you reply to an email notification of a post (not PM).

Test of Alert system...

Okay, now I  get your problem... I had never used the "Alert" function.
I have set this post to send me alerts... please reply to this message.

When you create a post or reply to a post there is an option to request "alerts" to your message by checking the appropriate box at the bottom of your message.  If you request "alerts" you will receive a PM to your registered private email inbox as follows:

When you open that PM (alert) message you see the following:

① REPLY ACTION To reply to this message post simply reply to this email message. 
..... NOTE: Please do not remove the ID in the message title.

② The email address of the sender

③ There is an ID number in the title

④ at the bottom of the message there are links to the original WPS thread

⑤ the "reply" is sent WPS (note the absence of a "title")

The message is sent to the WPS address from the alert message

The message is bounced... "No Reply Watchprosi." -and- "ERROR unable to process email".  The error message includes the text "Unknown forum"


I will forward the details to WPS technical support.


I can reproduce the error and will work on it. Thanks [nt]
