Is there a way to be able to reply to posts via email VS having to login to the forum first?
I don't think so. You can flip a setting control e-mail notifications for new posts, but as far as I've seen, you have to use the web interface create new posts or respond to existing posts.
Thank you. It would be nice to investigate this feature as it makes the forum use much easier on mobile devices unless there is a mobile app version of the forum.
No mobile app is available.
