Askbot supports asking questions by email via the IMAP protocol, answering by email is not yet supported.
This feature is still experimental and some emails will not be parsed, please report any issues at the askbot forum.
To enable the feature, please:
The email address to send the questions will be <IMAP_HOST_USER>@<IMAP_HOST>. Also, there is a quite strict requirement to the format of incoming messages - described in a response to any incorrectly formatted emails.
the “INBOX” used to post messages to askbot must be dedicated do not use any other mailbox as all messages are automatically deleted after each processing.
