Mail-2-Issue: Attach a new comment only when neccessary

Hi everybody,

as I described in a previous question (, I use JEMH to merge issues from mails by their subject. In the current configuration, JEMH appends a new comment for every mail with the same subject to the corresponding issue. How do I configure JEMH so that it checks the contents of a comment and creates one, only if neccessary?

Hi everybody,

Andy created the issue to implement this feature to JEMH. If you need it also, please vote for it :).



Hmm, OK, well Ive already replied to the forum post (I get all the mail!).

Using Regexp as previous you can identify an issue to comment on through some unique identifier in the subject or body. This enables remote system integration with JIRA.

Now, what is the use case you are trying to solve? What makes one message different to another and what 'checks' do you expect to made, what is 'necessary' ?

Hi Andy,

thank you for your reply. I switch to the other forum thread and treat this thread as closed.
