Currently, if a customer sends an email directly to the ticket system from an unrecognised email, they receive a response telling them that the support ticket could not be opened due to the address not being recognised. However, if the option to "Only Pipe Replies" is enabled for a department, and the customer sends an email directly to the ticket system from a recognised email address:
1) no auto response is sent
2) no ticket is opened
3) no admin notification of the failed attempt is dispatched
This results in some people being totally unaware that their ticket has not been opened.
Solution: If "Only Pipe Replies" is enabled and a customer attempts to open a ticket by emailing the system directly from a recognised email address, an auto reply letting them know their ticket was not opened should be dispatched to advise them they need to login to open the ticket.
