  • Posting to vBulletin by email

    Part of what I am looking for the forum that I buy to do is, when I get an email in Outlook, I want to set up a rule to forward that to another email address which in turns will post the email to the forum. Will VB do this?

    Thanks!

    There is no built-in function to do this. It would require modifying the code. You can try asking about this over at vbulletin.org.

      How many people have to suggest this before the VB team makes this a standard function ?

          I never thought e-mail system. I had thoughts of a news system. (programs like Xnews.) to read headers and post things.

            The whole point of a forum, is to get people to visit/participate at your site.

            Seems like you want an e-mail list. I personally don't even like "e-mail notification" at all. I want people to visit and check messages, not only visit when a message they are interested in has replies. That is the whole point of a forum.

              And take into consideration that there are many ways to forge the sender of an email, so accepting an email as a post is not such a good idea...
