PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

What would happen if I replied?

Sorry, kinda a weird question, but you know how if you leave a comment, answer a question, or ask a question, you can tell it to E-Mail you if someone replies? Well, what would happen if I replied to that E-Mail? Where would the E-Mail go, to some part of the site to be stored? To Pokemaster maybe? Would it bounce back? Basically, if I replied to, say, Pokebase Answers, would it act as a real E-Mail address?
Sorry, not even sure if this question is allowed, but it does have to do with the site...

When you tick that box, if someone replies an email is sent to you with their reply. The email comes from a "no reply" email address, so if you reply it won't go anywhere. I guess it will get sent to the server, but the server will just ignore it.

Oh, thanks. Makes sense.

lf you're talking about e-mails sent from the website, those types of e-mails are sent by bots, which generally isn't checked, so if you replied no one would probably reply.
(That's why on most websites, most websites will tell you not to e-mail the message sent since they are automated messages, and if you want to contact them, you contact a different e-mail.)
