Instead of a new email creating a new issue, it should also be able to create a new message on a forum.

By specifying a default board instead of a default project in the environment of the rake redmine:email task, new emails from a specific address can be directed to a specific forum board so that the redmine forums can serve as a mailing list.

#1 Updated by T. Hauptman almost 9 years ago

One project I manage has a mix of redmine users and non redmine users that need to participate in the conversations related to the project. The non-users wanted to use email only.

I was able to create a mailing list experience with different emails going to different boards (using multiple email addresses, each with it's own imap account) with the following patch to the mail_handler

The patch is small but should be reviewed and cleaned up if adopted. I am not experienced in ruby, rails, nor redmine.
