bbPress Post via Mail


Reply to any post, forum topic and forum reply simply by sending e-mail reply. Now with file attachment support.

It strips away the quoted part of the message, so only the reply gets posted to the forum.

It took a bit of head-scratching trying to get plus-address forwarding to work with my webserver provider's configuration, but once I had that going it was great. This is a clever solution, thanks very much for making it available to the world for only $0!
