Subject [allura:tickets] #6249 Use a stable Sender: header in email notifications [ss4075]
Date Mon, 07 Oct 2013 10:34:38 GMT
Closed #447. `je/42cc_6249`

Don't sure what you've meant by "tool's email address", I did find only emails for individual
tickets in the code, so I'm constructing tool's address similar to that.

For this to work you need to change exim configuration slightly (by default exim strips Sender:
header from emails). The following worked for me on a sandbox:

local_sender_retain = true
local_from_check = false

Email notifications have varying From addresses (e.g. the ticket submitter).  Notifications
should have a `Sender:` header specified which refers to the system sending rather than the
end-user we're doing it on behalf of.  

This should be a stable value so that it can be used in mail filters (e.g. mailman).  Perhaps
the tool's email address would work well.  Test how common clients (e.g. gmail) display it
and if it affects replies at all.
