Description Harald Reindl 2012-04-10 06:56:13 EDT
mails triggered by scripts are containing "Auto-Submitted: auto-generated" header which is good, but they also should contain "Precedence: bulk" because some auto-reply implementations are looking at this header to supress replies 

 * Precedence: bulk
 * Auto-Submitted: auto-generated

i love the current behavior writing a script and if it generates any output get a mail to the admin-group, but it would be nice if one of the group is at holidays not trigger replies
Comment 1 Marcela Mašláňová 2012-04-10 10:15:03 EDT
From RFC3834
A response MAY include a Precedence field [I4.RFC2076] in order to
discourage responses from some kinds of responders which predate this
specification.  The field-body of the Precedence field MAY consist of
the text "junk", "list", "bulk", or other text deemed appropriate by
the responder.  Because the Precedence field is non-standard and its
interpretation varies widely, the use of Precedence is not
specifically recommended by this specification, nor does this
specification recommend any particular value for that field.

I guess it can't break anything if I add a line into do_command.c file.
Comment 2 Harald Reindl 2012-04-10 10:20:28 EDT
this would be very nice!

most auto-responders and mailing-lists are using this header
even postfix mailing-list and Wietse Venema is really a
hardliner in context of smtp

Thanks for idea. I pushed it as commit 1d42d62a372125fe9d5c97136dff042d2f2aba79

I'll add it into the next cronie release.
