Related ArticleOptions to “Reply” to a TMail

When you see Comments of a TMail, you can post an inline Response to a specific Comment, as required. Since this is an inline operation, it does not create a new TMail. (Please see Inline vs Forking Operations for more details.)

With an Inline Response to a specific Comment, the resulting Changeset will only contain a Comment. It will not contain attachments, added writers, added/modified/deleted Sections etc.

In Navigation, select the Message or TMail Pin where you want to post a reply at a specific Comment. For example, you can select a Message in Inbox folder, or a TMail Pin in TMail Pins | Recent. (Please see Navigation for more details.)

In the Comment details, you can see the C# for the Comment for which you posted this inline Response.

An alternative approach is to do a normal Inline Response and refer to the comment using the c# convention. For example, in the above example, you could write:

“Regarding c#21, I will send you the final version…”. This method has the advantage that you can refer to multiple comments in a single response comment. Of course these two methods are not mutually exclusive.
