looking for a tip.


Can anyone give me a hand with something?
I want to start answering comments by email. Is there a setting I can use to do that automatically? or do I have to enter each person's profile and do it from there?


***Solution found***

Thanks to everyone for your help, I finally found a solution an old blogger friend told me about.

If you subscribe by email to your own comments (you can find this option in your emailing settings) then you get emails of the comments. If the person has an email attached to their profile you can simply reply to the email. If not there is a "noreply-comment" in the "to" box.

I think the only way a person who leaves a comment and you respond gets it back via e-mail is if that person clicks on the "e-mail follow-up comments" box.

But I think you are asking to send them a response to e-mail only without writing it for everyone else to see. If that is the case, you need to look at the profile and get the e-mail address.

Unless someone else knows a way...

I'd echo JFB's question, are you trying to get comments in to the comment section by e-mail or are you trying to respond privately?

Also, if you are already on the post, why do you want to respond by e-mail instead of the comment box?

I've seen an option to put up posts via e-mail, but never to respond automatically. Some blog authors don't make their e-mail visible at all. That might make it tough to do.

Let us know (via e-mail or comment), what you find out.

If you are looking to reply to comments by email, so they appear on here I am afraid that is a big no no. It's impossible in blogger, you need to add a comments system called Disqus or alternatively (it's not as good) Intense Debate, both can be found at the domains of the same names.
