feature request: (new) post by email

the forum interface is, well, i find it utterly disgusting.
can we please gain the ability to post to the BB no-longer-proper-lists via email?
discourse can do that, is there any real reason why this is not enabled?

Hi @az143 in theory:

discuss @ beagleboard dot org

should work…

I believe @DrewFustini had tested it early on?


thanks, i’ll have a try. i couldn’t find that address anywhere in
the publicly documentation…

Hi @az143 in theory:

well it doesn’t work. why the hell was my laboriously written
email rejected as ‘auto generated’?

We’re sorry, but your email message to [“discuss@beagleboard.org”]
(titled seeedstudio beaglebone green gateway, random mac address for
eth) didn’t work.

Your email was marked as “auto generated”, which means it was
automatically created by a computer instead of being typed by a human;
we can’t accept those kinds of emails. If you believe this is an error,
contact a staff member.

Grrr… @fwbarber can we get a bit of help here?

@jkridner : Sure. The email in question contains headers indicating that it originated from a mailing list, which caused it to be rejected by Discourse:

X-Original-Authentication-Results: mx.google.com; dkim=pass
header.i=@breathe-safe.com header.s=selector2 header.b=“GXr/z1Ry”;
arc=pass (i=1); spf=pass (google.com: domain of az@breathe-safe.com

Isn’t that the e-mail address where we are supposed to be able to post new messages? I have it routed through Google Apps just to make it flexible, but it isn’t really a mailing list. I can redirect it if necessary.

@jkridner Yes, that’s the correct email address, but I’m not sure of the path the message took to get to our system. Either the originating mailer or any of the MTA’s along the way could have added those headers (or failed to remove them if it was a forward or something).
