Add Envelope-to Header line ?

Post by Melibokus73 » 2009-08-27 12:59

Hi.

is it possible to get a "Envelope-To:" header line added at any incoming Mail ?

At the Moment I get some Mails (mostly SPAM) where I could not see in the header to whom they are originally send.

But in future this would be nice to know anyway at all mails.

Is there any option /script or so to do this :?:

Add Delivered-To header

If this option is selected, hMailServer will add a Delivered-To header to all email messages. This header will contain the recipient address as given in the SMTP envelope during SMTP communication.
If at first you don't succeed, bomb disposal probably isn't for you! ヅ

Thanks ... :D that seams to be what I'm looking for.

I did test it and it works ;-)

but one little question/Issue I found about it.

I did send a mail:
TO: user1@mydomain.com
BCC: user2@mydomain.com; not_a_user@mydomain.com

Both users got the Mail, also the catchall User (=>not_a_user)
All 3 copys of the Mail have the correct "Delivered-To:" line

Code: Select all

Delivered-To: User1@mydomain.com
...
Delivered-To: User2@mydomain.com
...
Delivered-To: not_a_user@mydomain.com
...
But I also have a Mirror User:
there I saw the Mail 3 times. but all 3 have the same line

Code: Select all

Delivered-To: Mirror@mydomain.com
I did expect 3 differnt ones like in the Mails in the User and catch all accounts.

Am I wrong ?

You know as much as I do now. As far as i was concerned it showed which email address it was sent to so it should only have a single email address showing.

What I'm confused about is that the Mail is 3 times in the Mirror account, but 3 times with the same Delivered-To. of the Mirror Account.

yes, you are right => they are copied there. but I don't think that matters anybody on the Mirror Account.

In the catch-All account there it is like it should be. The MSG hast the right (original) Delivered-To header, but the Mail anyway got copied to this catch all Account . There the diliverd to header is not changed.

Would it be possible to do it this way for the Mirror Account, too? Or is there a Reason why this is not done ??

I only aks first before I insert a feature request :-)

Well, that's kind of unspecified... :) The actual recipient of the mirror message is the address specified in the administration gui, so in one way it would make sense that the Delivered-To header contains that address. On the other hand, I understand if it's not the expected..

I've reported it here:
http://www.hmailserver.com/devnet/?page ... ssueid=248

is it already fixed? :wink: in a 5.4 beta ? the newest Beta and Daily build are still both Beta 5.31 build 1680 and 1702

only 'cause it is now been marked as "Status = Resolved " in the Issue List.

The bug has been fixed but it's not included in any public builds yet. The fix will be included in 5.4.

5.4 is not public until it's up on the download page.

It will include mostly bug fixes, performance enhancements and some architectural changes to make it a bit more stable. A few new minor features will be added as well.

Many thanks :-)

Will 5.4 be the next public Beta? or are first still any 5.3.x Betas in the pipeline?

I have no idea whether 5.4 will be the next build. It depends on what issues are found by users using previous versions. Also, I don't see how its relevant whether 5.3.2 or 5.4 is the next version released. :)

The change you're requesting is in 5.4. The release date of 5.3.2 or 5.3.x won't affect the release date of 5.4.

There's still several features which are going to be added.

No, because there is no 5.4 version yet...
