Cannot send comments in via email for restricted tasks I receive updates for via email
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

I tried to reply to an email from T84818 (a task which I am allowed to get email updates from but not view via the web), but it returned this error (in a new thread, very annoyingly):

Your email to Phabricator was not processed, because an error occurred while trying to handle it:
This mail is addressed to an object ("T84818"), but that object does not exist.

That task is not public, so maybe that is the problem.

Aklapper renamed this task from Cannot send comments in via email for tasks I receive updates for via email to Cannot send comments in via email for restricted tasks I receive updates for via email.

@jeremyb has proven in T84818#936727 that users with web access to a task can reply to it via email.

It makes sense that a user that cannot post a reply via web (because they cannot access the task) cannot reply via email either. The fact that someone can receive a notification that cannot access via web is an anomaly to be fixed with T518.

For these reasons I'm closing this task as Declined. Let's fix T518 instead.
