[Curiosity Question Only] Post Response via Email

As stated, this is just curiosity and not a feature request or anything.

We have a variety of Players spread out over a number of locations. Some have easy access to the web, others are limited.

Will it ever be possible to respond to tags via email or even submit a post via email?

Again, this is not an issue...just curious.

Blessed Be...

Out of the box, likely not.

The only way to do something like that is to send emails to a generic address and then have Nova read those items out of the email account, parse them, and put them into the database. That involves using some functions that are often not available on shared hosts. It also involves setting up a cron job to run on a regular schedule which can be a little overwhelming for someone who's never done that sort of thing.

It probably could be on as an extension at some point, but there would still be a lot of setup and research for admins to make sure their host can run everything they need to for that sort of feature.
