Subject Re: Problem with org.apache.james.transport.mailets.AbstractNotify - branch-2.1-fcs
Date Tue, 14 Oct 2003 16:10:06 GMT






Steve,

/Hi,

/Method org.apache.james.transport.mailets.AbstractNotify.getSender()
/overrides org.apache.james.transport.mailets.AbstractRedirect.getSender()
/but fails to account for special addresses such as "SENDER" or
"UNALTERED".
/Therefore, specifying a special address causes an MessagingException to be
/thrown as an attempt is made to create a MailAddress from the special
/address.

/Either the code is incorrect or the intent is not to support special
/addresses in this branch of the hierarchy and the Javadoc comments are
/wrong.

/Happy to produce a patch, but first I need to known what the true intent
is.

IMHO.. the special addresses are handy, but I would say that as it was my
fault for doing it a bit half-assed that made someone make a proper job of
them.

OTOH.. Have you got a use case for the special addresses in this
application? Otherwise exposing them might simply offer "nonsense"
functionality, works as advertised but is never applicable in the real
world.
