Patching Redmine to allow email watchers to reply to issues via email
In order for email watcher to reply to issues (MailHandler), Redmine needs to be patched. These patches are available on my fork of redmine in the LSS-2708-mail-handler-find-user-refactoring branch.
Setup permissions for viewing, adding, and deleting email watchers in Redmine's Admin panel
Browse to an issue page
On the sidebar next to the standard Watchers there will be an Email Watchers section
Click Add and enter an email address to add as an email watcher
The plugin will automatically add all email watchers to outgoing issue email notifications.
