Subject [jira] Commented: (JAMES-875) MSGID_FROM_MTA_HEADER changed
Date Sat, 04 Oct 2008 17:23:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-875?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12636844#action_12636844

Stefano Bagnara commented on JAMES-875:
---------------------------------------

>From RFC2822:
----
   Note: There are many instances when messages are "changed", but those
   changes do not constitute a new instantiation of that message, and
   therefore the message would not get a new message identifier.  For
   example, when messages are introduced into the transport system, they
   are often prepended with additional header fields such as trace
   fields (described in section 3.6.7) and resent fields (described in
   section 3.6.6).  The addition of such header fields does not change
   the identity of the message and therefore the original "Message-ID:"
   field is retained.  In all cases, it is the meaning that the sender
   of the message wishes to convey (i.e., whether this is the same
   message or a different message) that determines whether or not the
   "Message-ID:" field changes, not any particular syntactic difference
   that appears (or does not appear) in the message.
----

IMHO this means that by default mailets should not change the Message-ID unless they want
to do this by purpose so the above change seems to be appropriate. 

Opinions?

than by the user agent.

Why is James changing that ?
