Responding to commentor's emails..?

In nice ole Blogger you could respond to comments to your posts that arrived instantly in your email.
This is no longer the case in "new" Blogger.
Your response will be returned to you :(
Is there a work-arround for this frustrating glitch?
It seems the old way was more friendly...
Thanks

You can still do that where the commenter has provided their email address, I believe. If they haven't, then the email will be returned to you, because their email is by default set at noreply-comment@blogger.com. I think it was the same with the old Blogger, although I wouldn't swear by it..

With old Blogger PILLE you didn't get the nonreply thing and no email is included as it is now.

Well, that never worked for me in old blogger either, so I haven't really noticed a difference...

I've got the sender's email in about half of the comment notices at the moment, so I am easily able to do an automatic reply? For example, for my latest post on strawberries, I could automatically reply to Freya&Paul and Valentina (the comment notifications have their email addresses at the "From" line) but not Alanna & Bea (noreply-comment).

Pille I only get proper addresses in subscriber responses...
Frustrating..

PS PILLE
How do you do those beautiful "mosaic" photo groupings on your blog?
Wonderful!

Pille said...

Your address came across as no-reply one, ParisBreakfasts :) Ironic, eh!
PS For the mosaic pictures, I use the Mosaic Maker over at at this address http://bighugelabs.com/flickr/

Huh???

I am with Anne on this - it never worked for me - if only!
