User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4 Build Identifier: We use bugzilla internally and many people get swamped with bug change notifications (ones that they want to see). We wanted to be able to add something to the "From:" header so that the recipient can easily tell whom was responsible for generating that particular notification (knowing who spawned the message can often inform you of whether it's an important comment or not, without having to open up the message or go to bugzilla). This turned out to be a fairly easy thing to accomplish, so I offer the changes back as a potential enhancement. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. create or change a bug 2. look at the generated email 3. "From: Bugzilla <bugzilla-daemon>" Actual Results: No Bugzilla header indicates what user was responsible for the email. Expected Results: "From: Bugzilla from Bevan Bennett <bugzilla-daemon>" [if realname set] "From: Bugzilla from firstname.lastname@example.org <bugzilla-daemon>" [if realname not set] The newchanged email profile can now make use of the %fromwho% variable which contains " from realname" if a realname exists, " from email address" if there is no real name, or is empty if a value could not be determined. I then change the newchanged profile to start with "From: Bugzilla%fromwho% <bugzilla-daemon>", in order to take advantage of the new feature.
