#9055 closed bug (fixed)

"From" in ticket mails is no longer the user changing the ticket

Apparently since the update to Trac 1.0 the "From" field of the ticket change notification mails is "Haiku" instead of the user changing the ticket.

ha! saw this same issue

comment:3 by nielx, 7 years ago

And now?

comment:4 by bonefish, 7 years ago

Much better apparently.

comment:5 by nielx, 7 years ago

The new Trac seems to resolve to spoofing email addresses. I have a feeling that the messages are now blocked by the mailing list providers.

comment:6 by bonefish, 7 years ago

Alexander's and my mails seem to make it to the list while yours don't. I assume you aren't subscribed to the list? That would indeed explain the problem.

The old Trac used the user name, but the mail address used for trac. I suppose it isn't trivially possible to do it that way again?

No, it requires some hacking. I will do that tomorrow. In any case I think the current behaviour is wrong in many ways: Trac should never spoof email addresses. The previous behaviour was better.

The issue was introduced in Trac 1.0. Before we had our own custom hack to have the author name in the From: line. New Trac seemed to finally make this no longer necessary, however it turns out the feature is broken.

Niels, can you please revert to the previous behavior ("Haiku" in the "From" field) until a final solution is found. So the mailing list at least distributes all mails again.

comment:9 by nielx, 7 years ago

I've done that. I will work on a more durable solution later.

Old behavior restored with a patch to our Trac package.
