Subject [jira] Commented: (OFBIZ-3379) Email sending process using one connection for To/CC/BCC causing issues
Date Sat, 02 Jan 2010 16:40:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-3379?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12795868#action_12795868

Tim Ruppert commented on OFBIZ-3379:

Read the subject and description of the error - they describe EXACTLY what the real world
problem was and provide a solution for it.  Thru the community process, and as a result of
one of your comments, the original fix was improved to have more flexibility to allow people
to configure if they don't want to get emails addressed to them (if there are other issues).
 So, as I stated earlier, the way that OFBiz sends notifications WAS broken for the way many
customers use it - and yes it has now been fixed.

On your other note - just because you've been doing it for a long time doesn't mean that you
do it right - not now and no guarantee about then.  But, at least you're now putting comments
related to JIRA tasks in JIRA - instead of in email - so I guess we can all take that as a
bonus and moving in the right direction together!  Just follow the processes and be a part
of intelligent communication in the projects and everyone will continue to be happy with your

> Typically BCCs are handled via the sending mail client. That is, when the client sees
a BCC in an email, it will open up two connections to the mail server, the first for the To/CC
fields, the second for BCC fields, this way the addresses are masked from the headers and
there is that layer of anonymity that BCC is used for.
> What appears to be happening is that OFBiz is sending all of the information in one connection
to the mail server and having the mail server sort out the details. So when sendTo encountering
an invalid email, and then terminating the remaining execution of the outgoing process and
no email sent to BCC address which is usually going to be a valid address from email settings
for the company.
> To fix the issue, we need to send this via two connection to mail client.
