Hello all,
I'm looking for a simple,free, web based helpdesk style application. Basically, the workflow i want to achieve is a user logs in, selects a department, has a subject and message, and when its submitted is automatically forwarded to an email address. When that message is replied to via email, i want that action added to the ticket automatically.
I have seen several that might be able to do this, but usually lack one feature, or is terribly expensive.
thanks in advanced.

Does pretty much exactly what you're after if my memory serves well.

Really depends on what type of services / features you are  looking for. They can get expensive if needing a fully blown scripting / knowledgebased version, or, integrated with telephony, web based, self service portals etc etc...

have a look at  http://www.ilient.com/free-help-desk-software.htm  and http://manageengine.adventnet.com/products/service-desk/free-help-desk-software.html?hlpdsk

they are free versions, but also have lots of options and add-ons and can scale up (but not free then) so might be a good starting point....

Also check out some other EE findings (going by title alone now)...
