How difficult, assuming it’s possible, would it be to adjust this for receiving replies via SMS (to use the episode’s example)?
You can definitely do it, but you wouldn't be able to use ActionMailbox for that. You'd want to use something like Twilio and setup a controller to receive the webhooks they send. I've been planning on doing some Twilio stuff, so I'll have to do that soon!
