How to set up an issue or comment on Yona by mail#

  • Yona uses the MailBox function to reply directly to the notification mail and register the comment, or to register the issue by mail to a specific project.
  • To use this function, you have to set up mailbox.
# Mailbox Service
# ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
# Mailbox Service fetches and process mails from IMAP server. For example, if
# the service fetches an email to a project, it posts the email as an issue of
# the project.
# If you want to use this feature, your IMAP server has to be configured to
# support the address alias using '+' sign, also known as 'subaddressing' or
# 'detailed addressing'. For example, emails to '' have
# to be delivered to ''.
# SECURITY WARNING: Yona believes the email address in From header of the
# received email is truthful and use it for authentication without doubt. To
# avoid this problem, your imap server must deny every email whose From header
# is forged.
# Here is an example if you use Gmail.
# Set imap.use to true if you want to use this feature.
imap.use = false =
imap.ssl = true
imap.user = ""
# The email address of Yona. Mailbox Service processes an email only if its
# address is as follows.
imap.address = ""
# Be careful!!!
imap.password = yourGmailPassword
imap.folder = inbox
