I recently started using a role. I have a personal email address (the one
i'm writing from) and a work email address (tom.anderson at e2x.co.uk) which
forwards to it. I have a role set up for work email, which sets my From
header and signature accordingly. I want the role to trigger automatically
for work email. The basic case is easy enough: i have a Recip pattern
which recognises @e2x.co.uk. That matches if someone sends or cc's an
email to my work address, and means replies to such emails go from my work
It doesn't work for mails from mailing lists, or at least not Sourceforge
The problem is that such emails don't have me in the To header - the key
headers look like this:
From: "Some Guy" <someguy at gmail.com>
To: htmlunit-user at lists.sourceforge.net
Reply-To: htmlunit-user at lists.sourceforge.net
Sender: htmlunit-user-bounces at lists.sourceforge.net
No mention of the address to which the mailing list is sending the
Most of the other headers that mention a recipient are set after the
forwarding step, so they have my personal address in. The one hope is this
X-Rcpt-To: tom.anderson at e2x.co.uk
Which i assume is added by the forwarding mail server. Or something.
Anyway, i duly created an 'extra header' rule to recognise that one. So
now my rules look like this:
Recip pattern = @e2x.co.uk
X-Rcpt-To pattern = @e2x.co.uk
But the role doesn't trigger on messages from the mailing list. I tried
something a bit more brutal:
Sender pattern = @lists.sourceforge.net
AllText pattern = @e2x.co.uk
And it *still* doesn't trigger!
Am i missing something? Is this a bug?
