Enabling new topics by email in #general

Hello everyone,

We have enabled the possibility to create new topics by email in this category.

This is an initial test to see if everything works as expected before opening this to other categories.

Note that (for now) you need to have Trust Level 2 (Member) or higher to create new topics by email.

You can create new topics by sending an email to general@community.openstreetmap.org

This very same topic was created from my email :wink:



Hi, that is exacly what i want to do right now.

Reply to an existing topic via email. But how?

e.g. Reply to Update OSM Software Watchlist via email.


If you are “Watching” a category or a topic you should have the messages on your inbox. Each message can be directly replied, the system generates a unique reply-to email to identify where to post it.

What has been enabled now is being able to create NEW topics via email.
