If the forum also works as a mailing list, you can create a forum topic by sending an email message to the forum. You can also reply to a post by replying to the email.
- Click Discussions in the project navigation bar.
- On the Forum Summary page, click the forum in which you want to create a topic.
On the Topic Summary page, find the email address in the
Mailing List field. Send your email message to that address.
TeamForge maps your email to the forum topic like
Email Field Forum Topic field To Forum email address Subject Title of forum topic Body Text of forum topic Attachments Attachments
Emails from the forum can be read in RTF (Rich Text Format) or HTML format. The format of the message is delivered as an attachment to the post. Embedded attachments, such as text or images, are also delivered.
A message to a moderated discussion forum is held until a moderator acts on it. (Except if it is from a trusted user. These messages don't require moderation.)
In a moderated discussion forum, if you add other addresses in the cc: field of your email, those addresses get your email only after the moderator approves the message.
