Auto-reply when a customer is not signed up

Is there a way to auto-reply with  customized template if a customer sent an email request to the service desk email but the account is not yet created? 

Also is to possible to create notification, so that such requests can be tracked and followed up if required?

You could do it the following way

1. You would need to create a custom email handler and put all your logic there. You can find tutorial here

2. You could use Email this issue plugin.

3. Use any other email handling plugins. There several like this in marketplace. 

@Keith and @Alexey Matveev,

You are both missing some vital information to the readers here. Particularly:

* Cloud or Server?

* JSD or JIRA? (this being posted in the JSD threads, I assume this is for JSD???)

I can add that I am on JSD cloud and do not believe the mail handler option would work for service desks that do not have an 'open' mailbox. i.e. only portal customers can email the service desk and respond via email or portal.

We are evaluating both options. Cloud and Server. Only registered users should be able to use the portal and send email requests. But we want to send a reply to unregistered contacts, to inform them that they must have a valid account.

I have been playing around with these configuration possibilities as well and have not been successful. I believe that the JSD environment 'turns off' mailing capabilities altogether unless it is available to 'anyone can email'.

Unless I am missing some workaround using the mail handler ?(which Atlassian recommends not to)
