Email sending without a Mailbox setup


At the moment we have fogbugz setup without any mailboxes, but we do have the BugzScout integrated in our app for bug reports and feedback suggestions.

The issue is that when a user provides their email address on the feedback form or the crash form and then submit it, it goes into FogBugz and fogbugz then gives you the option to "Reply" to the customer. The issue is that because we have no mailboxes set up that the "From" field is blank and is only a dropdown so it isn't possible to type any email in there.

My question is that is it possible to somehow add email addresses to this drop down without actually having a mail box setup?

You could set the Fog Creek Dispatcho Service to manual startup and stop the service, and then add a 'fake' mailbox...

That is what I was thinking I might be able to do.

I thought I might be able to just add a row to a table somewhere.

How might one do this?

Thanks for blazing fast response as well :)

You could add the row in the Mailbox table...
