Subject [jira] Created: (JAMES-444) Add support for "Expires" header in remotedelivery
Date Wed, 22 Feb 2006 20:54:37 GMT
Add support for "Expires" header in remotedelivery

         Key: JAMES-444
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-444
     Project: James
        Type: Improvement
  Components: Matchers/Mailets (bundled)  
    Versions: 2.3.0a1    
    Reporter: Stefano Bagnara
 Assigned to: Stefano Bagnara 
    Priority: Minor

Every of our emails has a

Expires: Thu, 15 Dec 2005 21:45:01 +0100 (CET)

header (new RFC 822 'Expires:' header and http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2156.html).

If the follow-up MTA is down for say one day all mails
are hold by james in its outgoing queue.
As most of our mails expire after one minute there
may be say 20000 mails which are expired during a day.
I don't want to forward them when the folloup MTA comes
up again but just silently erase them.

I think the mailet interface is invoked when the mail
arrives to james (and is not expired at this point)
but not when james tries to forward them - true?

thanks for some insight,
