Description Harald Reindl 2013-09-21 09:23:49 EDT
please add the following mail headers in notifies

Precedence: bulk
Auto-Submitted: auto-generated

Description of problem:
this avoids any sane autoresponders to generate a reply of the person is at vacation und should be default for any server generated email not written by a human person
Comment 1 Simon Green 2013-09-21 19:15:38 EDT
Can you please point to an RFE that states this standard. Thanks.

Comment 2 Harald Reindl 2013-09-21 19:43:12 EDT

is a source-snippet from the Mailserver we use to supress replies to mailing-lists which all have "Precedence: list", i also made an RFE for logwatch which added this header and from this day if one of our admins is at vacation it stopped to receive replies

my intention for this RFE is that i saw outgoing autoreplies from my own account to the redhat bugzilla afte rnotifies which is not really a thing that should happen

Comment 5 Harald Reindl 2013-11-29 04:01:10 EST

"Auto-Submitted: auto-generated" confirmed, should be enough for our autoresponder but i would suggest "Precedence: list" or "Precedence: bulk" for other mail-systems which ignore "Auto-Submitted" too

Hi Harald,

As per MODIFIED only means that change has been put into source control. It does not indicate that the change has been pushed to production Red Hat Bugzilla.

Once the status is CLOSED / CURRENTRELEASE, the change will be live.

This change is now live. If there are any issues, do not reopen this bug.
Instead, you should create a new bug and reference this bug.
