Thank you Siegfried,

I'll take a look!

>             Project: Commons Email
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 1.1
>            Reporter: Blake Fridman

> Problem:
> We have been using Commons Email for years without issue.  Recently we have found a good
use case to have non-production environment redirect emails to another email address/public
outlook folder to make sure our customers are not accidentally emailed nor or people in our
company sent emails from non-prod applications (emails look the same as prod so users have
a hard time differentiating and some users also get hundreds of emails a day so if we can
stop them from getting them that would be great).
> Proposal: 
> I propose exposing the following functionality in org.apache.commons.mail.Email.java:
> http://java.sun.com/products/javamail/javadocs/javax/mail/Transport.html#send(javax.mail.Message,%20javax.mail.Address[])
> Send the message to the specified addresses, ignoring any recipients specified in the
message itself. The send method calls the saveChanges method on the message before sending
it.
> What's great about this means is that message header still has TO/CC/BCC headers as if
it was in production so when viewed in a client such as outlook looking at the folder the
email went to it's easy to sort and see who it's intended for (great for Training and SQA
departments).
> Possible Solutions:
> There are a couple of solutions that come to mind that involve modifying org.apache.commons.mail.Email.java,
hopefully they will help:
> - Adding a new Send method that takes in receipients (and clearly states that any previous
addresses added will be in the email message headers but ignored when the email is sent)
> - Adding new method addRecipients and if that is called automatically use Transport.send(Message
msg, Address[] addresses) in place of Transport.send(Message msg)
> Anything that is added will probably need to be exposed by the classes that utilize Email.java
(such as HTMLEmail)
