Needing some help

Can someone please tell me how to respond to a commend through email? I can not figure it out for the life of me! I want to reply back to all your wonderful comments. I reply on my blog at times, but am unsure if any of you go back to look. This would be very much appreciated.

Pin It!

If you have your blog set up to receive Comment Notification Emails, you can just reply through the email.
If not, click on customize, choose Settings, then Comments. Scroll all the way down to the bottom & add your email address to the box that says Comment Notification Email. Click Save Settings.
The only problem is if you get a lot of comments, you will get a LOT of emails!

I know what you are talking about, but that is not what I need help on. I am wanting to reply to peoples comments through email. Does that make sense? Kind of hard to explain, but when I have left comments on others blogs they have answered back through email. In the subject line it says which post it was from.

Ugh, I am probably making this to confusing. Sorry! Thanks for trying to help though, I appreciate it.

I keep thinking about this too...I want to respond to the comments. Only thing with the above suggestion is you would get an email on all posts so that means all the entries for giveaways.

I did sign up for a comment notification program (I can't think of the name at the moment!) but it wasn't very useful either because I would have to approve each comment as well.

If you find a program that looks good let us know!

You just go to your settings, comments and go to comment notification email and whatever email you want in. All emails will go to your inbox and you just reply to those emails. I do this everyday

You can only reply to comments via emails when the person has their email listed in their profile... just hit reply and you should be able to tell if you can respond to that comment by email. They'll have a email addy instead of the no-reply comment blogger. You'll also need to have comment notification set up.

I hope that makes sense... feel free to email me if you have any questions about it.

with blogger, the only way to do it is by using comment moderation like the others have mentioned. I think what you are talking about is available with other platforms (like wordpress)
I am not 100% sure on that, but I am pretty sure!

When you get the comment to your email you hit reply. This will only work if they have their email address on their profile usually. If the email isn't on the profile then it will say something blogger in the address. When you click reply look at the email address if it is a valid one then you are replying right to them! If you reply on here then the only time they are going to see it is if they come back to see if you responded. I hope that was some help!

Thanks for everyones help. Hmmm..I guess this will not work for me afterall. I cannot have the comments go to my email because I recieve so many for giveaways. I switched it to auto publish a few months ago after having to publish hundreds of giveaway comments. It IS a bummer because I would like to recieve my non-giveaway post comments in my inbox so that I could reply by email. :-( I guess this is a feature blogger needs to come up with, eh?
