Yes. As far as I know, there is no way for the system to
determine these from the contents of the email. In the Pari
bugs system discussed by Frédéric Lehobey,

a special "pseudo-header" that contains such fields is defined.
The system looks for such a header and sets status fields
accordingly. I suppose it might be possible to do that in
MathAction with a little hacking.

Just click on the issue title and it appears. Make the changes
and click Change.

But... some complications arise if the Page type is Plain Text.
In that case because of a bug in IssueTracker, the fields do
not show up. A work-around is, first click Edit, change the
Page type to something else, e.g. Structured Text+LaTex. Click
Save, change the fields, click Change, then Edit and change
Page type back to Plain Text and click Save. I have submitted
a issue report to the ZWiki developers about this.

In my previous tests, emails sent to address@hidden
were automatically of Page type: Structured Text+LaTeX, so
it should be easy to change the fields. Did you deliberately
change the Page type to Plain Text?
