You can post messages to Vibe directly from your e-mail. You can send a direct message to a user, send a message to a user’s personal feed, or send a message to a group feed, without ever logging in to Vibe.
You can e-mail messages only from the e-mail address that is configured in your personal profile. For information on how to update the e-mail address in your personal profile, see Section 1.7, Updating Your Profile.
By default, you can send messages to any users or groups that you have permission to send messages to within the regular Vibe interface. However, if you send a direct message to a user through e-mail and that user has his or her permission settings set to restrict users from e-mailing them direct messages, your e-mail message is rejected. Furthermore, if you are sending a direct message to multiple users through e-mail, if only one of those users has his or her permission settings set to restrict users from e-mailing them direct messages, your e-mail message is rejected and no users receive the message.
You can restrict users from sending you Vibe messages through e-mail, and you can turn off the ability to post messages to your personal feed through e-mail. For more information on access rights in Vibe, see Section 9.0, Limiting Access to Messages and Groups.
Messages that are e-mailed into Vibe are displayed in Vibe as if you had composed the message in Vibe.
E-mailing a message to your personal feed posts the message on your personal feed, e-mailing messages to a group feed posts the message on the group’s feed and so forth. You can also send messages directly to individual users.
You can add attachments to your e-mail. E-mail attachments are displayed in Vibe messages below the text of your message.
