Right, and the system already supports this. When you e-mail into the
system, your e-mail address and name are included in the your message,
so that developers can see who sent the message and respond to them

The Web UI supports the same feature: You can set the 'requestor' field
to your e-mail address you can receive e-mail notifications about the

As an additional features, All bugs from the same e-mail address can be
seen together.

Unfortunately, I don't get the sense that you tried any of these things.
(I'm a little frustrated because I feel like I'm answering the same
questions about the BTS over and over.)

password associated with it.
