Similar to this question In a bounty scenario, can an answer from before the bounty be automatically accepted?
But in my case (Make Gmail send automatic canned responses for email it gets via POP) one of the replies was edited after the bounty was posted. However it still does not answer the question. (It was basically edited to clarify that it poses a solution that does not fit the original question.) Also in my case, the question was not originally mine. I tried to use a bounty to revive the existing question rather than attempting to post a duplicate. (However, I am disappointed that the bounty resulted in very few additional views of my question, and no additional suggestions.)
No one has posted a new reply or edited an old one to answer the question. So I would like the bounty to not be awarded. (I know that I won't get the points back. I don't care about that.) I am just wondering if that edited reply, which was also accepted by the original poster, will automatically get the bounty awarded or not.
