#36834 closed enhancement (maybelater)

Add Reply-To header on comment notification

Description

The comment author is currently included in the mail content of comment notifications, but would be better to have it in the email Headers too.

Would it be possible to add to email Headers a simple "Reply-To" with the Author email when a comment notification is sent?

I use comment moderation and sometimes a clarification from the author is needed. Adding "Reply-To" header will make easier to send a reply to the user which posted a comment.

@ivanrf Howdy, and welcome to Trac!

Personally, when I leave a comment on a site, I am not inviting a follow-up response via email. I expect any follow-up discussion to occur within the comments.

I can understand your use-case. Being able to reply to the comment notification email to communicate directly with the comment author would save you a few steps.

WordPress powers such a broad range of websites, I don't think this request is broad enough for a WordPress core change.

We do have a filter, comment_notification_headers, that would allow a plugin to implement your request.

Closing this ticket for now, as maybelater.
