Subject [jira] Commented: (OFBIZ-3379) Email sending process using one connection for To/CC/BCC causing issues
Date Sat, 02 Jan 2010 16:26:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-3379?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12795867#action_12795867

Ruth Hoffman commented on OFBIZ-3379:

Really? And what was that problem? Email wasn't "broken". The process by which OFBiz sends
notification - using email - does not work the way the original developers had intended. 

On another note: Don't waste your time presuming to lecture me on problem solving techniques.
I've been working with computers and software since before Al Gore invented the internet :-)
if, on the other hand you feel compelled to vent because you don't agree with me, well then
by all means - go for it!

>             Project: OFBiz
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: framework
>    Affects Versions: Release Branch 9.04, SVN trunk
>            Reporter: Pranay Pandey
>            Assignee: Scott Gray
>             Fix For: Release Branch 9.04, SVN trunk
>         Attachments: OFBIZ-3379.patch, OFBIZ-3379.patch, OFBIZ-3379.patch
> 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.
