Home Forums WordPress Plugins “Could Not Connect to Mail Server” with bbPress RBE Reply To: “Could Not Connect to Mail Server” with bbPress RBE


Hi Jeremy,

There are two plugins at play here: bbpnns and bbpnns-rbe.

bbpnns sends out the notifications based on the templates that you provided. While preparing to send out the notifications, the RBE plugin does two things: a) Injects the reply-above string (which you can edit in the RBE settings); b) Injects reply-to headers in the email.

As for email replies showing in the forums, you need to set RBE up to either run with WP Cron or with webhooks + a real cron job.

Please read the From Email to Forums section of the documentation to have a better understanding of what needs to be done:
