Oh heck Bob, you keep yourself safe there.
Jim and Cagey have more or less answered this for you, you can just reply to any of the tomnod post updates you receive in the same way you would to any other email and it’s automatically posted into particular forum post you use. But I don’t think you can create a New post in the forum via email or read/participate in any other new posts or any posts you’ve already read but haven’t posted any responses to. If anyone else knows anything different, any corrections you’d like to make would be gratefully appreciated
There are 2 types of email updates we receive:
One is an individual email of any reply/response a member has made directly to yourself in a post such as this one you’ve linked me to (Naturally, in any posts you yourself have created, you will receive emails of all responses made in that post.) :-
These you can reply to like any other email and it will automatically go into that post in the same manner as if you had replied directly into that post on the forum.
The other type of email we receive is the “Tomnod Forum Summary”…
…which as it says on the bottom of that email "This summary is sent from Tomnod Forum when we haven’t seen you in a while. To unsubscribe click here"
So naturally this one doesn’t come in very often and there doesn’t appear to any way of replying to any of those individual posts listed.
Because I clear out my emails pretty much on a daily basis, I don’t have any other examples of emails I might have received through the TN forum other than private emails from individual members here. That is something else you can do…I think…I’ll just go test it out first (@Jim7, @cageycat heads up )
What I’ve done is taken the email address from AKE235’s emailed update of his reply to me above. So that’s another for you Bob to contact members who could post on your behalf.
I suppose another way to keep you updated would be to link you in to all new posts. All us old regulars could do that easily enough Unless anyone else knows of a more efficient way of doing this I just can’t think of any other way you can read ALL posts through email regardless of whether you’re linked into any of them
Another way I’ve thought of so you can post anything unrelated to specific topics posts is set up a new post for you under the Water Cooler or Technical Issues categories.
