Hi all. I've been working on migrating my Yahoo Group to FUDforum, and the major technical issue that's killing us is replying by email. On Yahoo, hitting reply would send an email directly to the sender, but here, the approach is about replying to the entire forum. Fud has a lot of good tools like PM and the ability to email from the user's profile, but my users are spoiled by Yahoo's simplicity.

Specific questions:
1. Can a "reply by email" button be added to messages? I would prefer that it open with the text of the quoted message.

(PMs aren't a full answer because we allow anonymous users to post. That being said, a hack to make PMs open up with the quoted message text would also be a good touch.)

2. All of the emails sent to the subscribers of a forum are "from" the same administrative address. How can we change the "From" and "reply-to" to the email address of the person who posted the message.

I would be super grateful for help with these issues.

You can modify the drawmsg.tmpl (draws the message) template to display an e-mail link that would allow a person to reply to the poster via e-mail. mailto: link allows for subject & body to be passed via GET params so you should be able to accomplish what you want.

if you use mailto: then e-mail will be sent via person's e-mail client solving the From:/To: header issue.
