Creating Forum Threads from Email

Is it possible to send an email to a forum and it showing up as a new Community Forums thread?


Also, is it possible to connect a listserv to Community Forums? (i.e. emails from the listserv generating threads in Community Forums in a space)

Hi Liza,

We have looked at this functionality in the past however we feel this is not a Forum feature but a potential Confluence feature or perhaps a separate add-on for Confluence. There is a level of complexity and design required around this very issue that does not fit the current thinking or general usage around Community Forums.

Nevertheless, I am always interested in discussing customer use cases to see how we can continue improving our products. If you would like to discuss this feature or your experience with Community Forums further, please feel free to email me at


Kind Regards,

Hessom Arta
