Hi Ray,

I just tried forwarding something to two groups and had the posting rejected, saying I don't have the ability to post to those groups. I am a member of them through my Redmine Administrator account and post often via email to them. I've attached the error message here. Thanks in advance for looking into this

Hi Matt,

Is this referring to your /members/admin user account? If so, I just checked your WordPress role for that account and it has the author role. I think this is correct as this was part of the changes to downgrade certain user accounts in #12103.

However, I do not believe you have experienced this "publish topics" problem until now. Is that correct? I do see in your activity that you have posted new topics by email as recently as a week ago. Not sure if this is related to #15209.

Regardless, I've added a potential fix in bp-reply-by-email here that doesn't use the bbPress participate capability to grant posting permissions. I'm testing with the more universal exist WordPress capability.

Matt, can you try posting a new topic by email to see if it is working or not?

Hi Ray. Sorry for the confusion, but this was an attempt to post to a forum group

The fix was in place when you posted that topic :)

So we should be good to go! I'll commit the fix in a bit.
