Does replying to a discussion via email expose my email address?


#1

This was a question from one of our community members. They were worried that their email address would be exposed when replying to a PM (Private Message) or Forum discussion over email.

So the short answer is that your email address will not be exposed if you use the reply to email feature. The way it works is that your system gets your email, it then pulls out the response content, strips out the typical signatures that get added to emails, and then pushes just your response that was in the email in to the discussion as if you had logged in to the forums and posted it using a web browser.
