Sorry for the long title but I’m guessing that this post will be found by people searching for this more than those of you that subscribe to my blog.
For a long time, actually ever since I got an email from Marisa McClellan stating that she replied to a comment I left on her blog, I’ve wanted to be able to reply to a comment on my blog and have it automatically sent to the person that I’m replying to via email without changing the workflow for me. In other words, I didn’t want to have to copy/paste my reply and email the commenter or reply to the default WordPress comment notification email. I wanted to simply click reply on the comment, type in my message, select who I would like to email (or not) and click send.
With CommentMailer I can do just that. Although it is only at version 0.1 (so it is a little bit rough) it works great and I am happy I can finally let people that are kind enough to comment on my blog know that I’ve replied via email.

The %notes% keyword is the one that will ultimately put a link in the email back to the original blog post. It would be nice to have %link% available though.
