Setup incoming email to allow for Forum replies, etc.
It appears there is a use-case for a more functional email gateway. Here's how to do it in redmine.

This should work, at least partly for now. There is a big caveat, however: If a user replies to an email notification from a different sender address than what the original email was intended to, this doesn't work. For example, if the notification was sent to email@example.com, but the user replies from firstname.lastname@example.org (because they happen to have a poorly configured email), it does not work... Since redmine has no way of knowing who should be put in the user field.
Please update if this is an acceptable solution.

There are three options for email from unknown users: ignore the email
altogether (moved to a separate 'failed' folder in the mailbox), post
it as an anonymous user (doesn't work in our case, because we don't
allow anonymous posting), or create a new user (not really the best
option IMO for open systems like ours).
