Description Greg DeKoenigsberg 2002-10-25 14:12:22 UTC
Taken from an email to rhn-feedback:


I am a consultant for a company that makes use of RHN, and it would be very
helpful if you allowed more than one email address to be added for notification
emails. At present, my customer is forced to forward every update notification
to me manually. It would be much better if we could add a CC: address for

You can add a second e-mail quite easily - just go to the account details page:

And enter the second e-mail address after the first, seperated by a comma, like
so: jkomenda@redhat.com, joe@komejo.com

If use of this feature breaks something, then the bug is: break out "cc: this
address for notifications" as a separate feature.

this works only by coincidence and will likely change in the very, very near future.

please don't tell users to do this.  multiple notifications is a feature of
Enterprise (create additional users, give them perms over servers, etc)

Comment 4 Josef Komenda 2002-10-25 15:35:06 UTC
Could we run a query to see if we have any users currently doing this?

Comment 5 Leonid Mamtchenkov 2002-10-30 13:29:20 UTC
Hmm, what's wrong with aliases?

echo "alerts: root,sysadmin,consultant" >> /etc/aliases
