Closed Bug 51300 Opened 24 years ago Closed 20 years ago, send mail using -ODeliveryMode=background


(Bugzilla :: Bug Import/Export & Moving, defect, P2)




Bugzilla 2.18


(Reporter: justdave, Assigned: preed)



(Whiteboard: MTAConfig)

I remember reading somewhere else that the folks thought it was a 
Bad Thing to do background emailing...

In both and (the bug move code) calls to sendmail are being 
made with -ODeliveryMode=background.  Should this be changed to use the new 
'sendmailnow' param?  Or should it just send the mail directly?

We are currently trying to wrap up Bugzilla 2.16.  We are now close enough to
release time that anything that wasn't already ranked at P1 isn't going to make
the cut.  Thus this is being retargetted at 2.18.  If you strongly disagree with
this retargetting, please comment, however, be aware that we only have about 2
weeks left to review and test anything at this point, and we intend to devote
this time to the remaining bugs that were designated as release blockers.
