xyz was sent using exactly the method you request. this has been a feature of our phabricator literally forever (since before it was a production service).

Oh, wasnt aware maybe we should add a reminder at the tasks emails saying that you can reply to email to comment?

No, please not. We don't have to put every sentence of https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Phabricator/Help into every email to cover any potential situation...

@Aklapper all i was thinking of was adding a little footer that says reply to comment, nothing big, heck it could put at font size 6

See my previous comment.
Another line is another line (and "font sizes" do not exist in my plain text emails :P ).

@Aklapper it was just an idea, however I do suggest reply by email feature be more noticeable because I'm sure a lot of other devs (like me) didn't know this feature was already a thing. But you know best, and a (pardon my french) hell of alot more then I do when it comes to Phab.

I don't want to derive from upstream code and maintain a custom patch for this. :)
