Start topic via email

What I want is for a user to be able to start a topic via email.


eg. Send an email to a specific alias (one per forum) and have that create the forum topic.


Has anyone ever solved this?

Really interesting idea, not aware of anyone doing this obviously you can reply by email but not create a topic.

That said all I could think of when I read your post was SPAM! You would have to be very cearful about it's use because if in public domain it would be very easy to spam your community and if bad enough maybe even take it down... Actually what am I saying lithium offer fives nines with double capacity for each instance so that doubtful but either way it could cause more trouble than the benefit it gives.

May I ask what your specific use case is for? May be other solutions?


Checkout some of the stuff i've built using the platform:

Community l Ideation l Blog l Product Hubs l Check & Report l Service Status

It's for an internal community, employee-only. Our employees are heavily used to spending all day in Outlook.  They like the new forums we have launched, but they want to be able to post questions from Outlook.


Not worried about spam.



Any updates on this? This would be great for our b2b comm!
