Can I reply to messages via email?

Yes, Basecamp allows you to post comments on messages via email.

When you receive a message or comment notification by email, simply click “reply” and your comment will be posted to the project.

At the top of new message and comment notification emails you’ll see this:

Reply ABOVE THIS LINE to post a comment to the project
Anything you type above that line will be posted back to the project as a comment on the message. This is especially useful if you’re on a mobile device (Blackberry, iPhone, etc) and you want to reply without having to log into Basecamp over a slow internet connection.

Note that you can only reply to the message in plain text—HTML emails will not be posted to the project. File attachments are accepted and will be posted to the project if you attach them to your reply.
