    So when will we a message in the Jetpack changelog that says “Easily reply to comments via email”? It’s a nice feature and one I think I’d take advantage of if I didn’t need to format any of the text.

      Hey Jeff,

      What do you mean by *format any of the text*? Do you mean worry about signatures and such, or instead are you talking about the ability to include html in your comment? We have solutions to both in place….

        For example, if I were to reply to comments via email from an iPhone and wanted to include a link or something, doing it via the Phone is a bad experience. This isn’t on Postmatic but the device itself. Too many things to do just to enter a link. But for straight text, it’s a convenience.

        Yea, there’s not much we can do about that… however just being able to leave a reply from the mail app on your phone is pretty handy as far as i’m concerned :)

        In our beta sites we see gains in engagement but more so an increase in the quality of the conversation and greater diversity in the kinds of people participating. The post gets delivered right to the inbox, and the replies come in from there as well. This blows the doors open on the kind of audience we are able to get participation from. Everyone knows how to do email. It’s so simple.

        This is true and the less friction there is in engaging in the discussion, the better.
