Fixed In Version: abrt-2.1.11-36.el7
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Format of emails sent by *ABRT* is now configurable You can now configure the format of emails sent by *ABRT* using the new "-F FORMAT_FILE" command-line option of the *reporter-mailx* utility. This option allows you to define your own format. Without the "-F" option, *reporter-mailx* uses the default format, which sorts all important elements by importance. For more information about the format of formatting files, see the *reporter-mailx(1)* man page.

Description Steeve Goveas 2015-11-12 09:50:43 UTC
Description of problem:
In abrt emails single line files precede multi-line files and multi-line files are displayed in alphabetical order. So contents of reporter_to are shown towards the end of the email report. If the backtrace is too long, this leads to scrolling all the way to the end of the email. The work around for this, is to rename files like reported_to to a name starting with "a".
I'm renaming it to abrt-faf-report to make it list before backtrace. If possible we should be able to configure the format to provide desired information in the first few lines of the email.
