As a Super Admin, you can manage the email posting settings for discussion-related subscriptions and inbound email posts/replies for ALL of your community site's discussions.
NOTE: These settings only affect posting and replying to discussions via email, not via the Discussion directly.
Manage Email Posting
To do so:
- Access the Admin interface.
- Navigate to Email > Discussions > Email Posting Settings.
- Configure the available settings.
|Plain Text Subscriptions|
|Allow real-time plain text subscriptions||Controls whether real-time plain text subscriptions are allowed. If checked, the Display name of plain text subscription option appears below.|
|Display name of plain text subscription||The text you want displayed for plain text subscriptions.|
|Post/Reply Via Email Settings|
|Allow users to post/reply via email||
Controls whether users can post and reply to discussions via email. If this setting is not enabled, users can only participate via the discussion directly.
NOTE: If enabled, the remaining options in this section appear.
|Who Can Post/Reply via Email||By default, all community members can post/reply via email. If the Allow real-time plain text subscriptions option above is enabled, however, you can also allow posting/replying via email by plain-text subscribers.|
|Code of conduct settings||
|Phrase in subject line for auto-reject||The system checks to see if an inbound email (i.e., an email sent from a user to a community email address) has any of the phrases in this list in the email subject line. If so, the system will automatically reject the post.
Use this feature to prevent a circular email loop from occurring. For example, a user receives a real-time email from the community, but because they've set up an Out of Office message, that message is accidentally posted to the community.
