|Summary||0001450: Modify sendmail function in CAcert to include test functionality|
|Description||Ensure that the source code for the web site uses only a mail function that is contained within the web site source code.|
This mail function will use configuration variables to control whether it is in Test or Production mode, as well as other options.
|Additional Information||This change requires the Configuration File change described in Bug 1449.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
At present, the only modification to the sendmail() function is to test for a Production State being either Production or Test. If it is Test, then the destination e-mail address is modified to a pre-determined ( configuration variable ) value.
That modification removes the existing To address from the sendmail() call, and replaces it with an address found in the configuration file.
did you look up if/where on the test server is a mechanism to reroute emails to test-mgr?
for testing purpose it is not useful to send all mails to a predefined email-address, because in this case only one person can test at a time. or if sending to a list, all members of that list would get the messages too.
||test.cacert.org has a postfix configuration that intercepts all outgoing mails and stores them in a single mailbox that is made available to testmgr via dovecot/IMAP.|
||I am informed that the Test Server has special e-mail configuration that can override this change, so am cancelling it.|
I agree that this issue is not relevant for bug-1260, and not important for any other issue I'm aware of. There are lots of more important issues open for the "core" developers.
But it may be a nice warmup excercise for a new developer to provide some possible variants of the sendmail function, so people who want to install their own testserver have some options if they don't want (or are not able to) configure their mailer as it currently is on the testserver.
So, maybe we keep this issue open with a low priority, just in case someone new is looking for a job?
