Some of you might have noticed some weird stuff on the forum the last hour. Some months old posts suddenly appeared out of the blue or you might have received mails from the forum in your inbox.
The reason for this is that we fixed the mail-to-forum function that was broken.
Discourse has a feature that allows you to reply to topics from your mail. I found out this wasn’t working and asked it to be repaired. But as soon as it got repaired, Discourse pulled 7 months of messages that had been waiting all that time into the forum.
Lesson learned: we should have emptied the mailbox before reconnecting it to Discourse.
So, the good news is that the reply by e-mail function is working again.
Unfortunately a lot of messages that were stuck in the system only just got delivered now - you may see some replies to older topics and get some delayed mail notifications.
