Delivery failure reason in list of undelivered messages

Post by martin » 2005-07-28 22:01

When it's not possible to deliver a message, there's no way for you to know what went wrong before the server has retried x times and you've received an error message back.

I think it would be nice to have a new column in "Undelivered messages" with the header "Failure" (or something) that shows what went wrong. Even if it just says Connection failure I think people would be less confused..

Would it be possible to expand on this a little?

Currently If an email generated by php fails I have to regenerate that email manually. Would it be possible to attatch the failed email to the failure notice that gets sent out from mailer-daemon@domain so you can then just open the attachment and retry to send the failed message.

This would be extremely useful to me as sending out reciepts takes a lot of calculations and when they fail I have to do it all manually which takes an age..

Thanks in advance.

Sorry to bump this. I was wondering if this was still a consideration (Attaching the failed email to the failure notice)?

I think it means that he's 'bump'ed it up to the top of the 'Feature Requests' forum submitting a reply to this topic. By getting it to the top, more people will see and consider it.

Aye, Bumping a topic is a bit of a no no really and should be avoided hence my apology :)
