Description

(1) Like TRAC,
each mail notification has its own header, so it helps mail client filter mails easier.
The mail header is "X-redmine-project".

(2) When mail is notificated, default mail sender is fixed as administrator has defined. With this patch, most of mail
message is sent from event generating user.

Add the following headers to email notifications (#830, #247):

  • X-Redmine-Project: identifier of the project that the notification is related to, if any
  • X-Redmine-Issue-Id, -Author, -Assignee: ticket related info
  • X-Redmine-Topic-Id: identifies the thread a message belongs to

History

#1 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang over 12 years ago

  • Category set to Email notifications
  • % Done changed from 0 to 50

Headers added in r1265.

Concerning (2), some SMTP servers won't authorize emails with a FROM adress different from the one used for authentication. It could be an option but not the default behaviour.

#2 Updated by Patrik Kullman almost 11 years ago

Can these also be used in incoming emails to override Project etc in the header instead of the mail body?

#3 Updated by Ryan Phung over 10 years ago

Any idea whether (2) can be added as optional behaviour?

It will be a very nice feature, and will allow notification to be done more effectively.

In big project teams, when people receive a lot of email they usually filter their email by sender (for example, give more priority to email sent from the boss, from customers, etc.); it is difficult to make the transitions to using Redmine because one cannot filter his/her messages the same way anymore. To rely on Redmine notifications, one has to read every email.

Changed "Assigned to" to Jean-Philippe Lang (I hope this mean this patch will be brought to your attention). Apologies if this is not the correct way of doing it.

I have some code that does this already. I'll need to see if I can extract it and make it optional.

Hey Eric,

We're very interested in this functionality. Possible to post here? Whatever you've got would be useful.

Thanks!

Another option is proposed in #5405. So the Form field could be one the following:

A setting could be added to choose between these 3 options.
