Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: New message header format causing spam
I think the Reply-to and From headers are mixed up. Why would I want to reply to the notification bot?
Tom: Replying to the notification bot makes sense for forums for the case when the reply-by-email functionality is enabled. I don't know how mailing lists _should_ handle this but some handle it the same way, e.g. Reply-To is set to the list address (and there are some people who have fanatic opinions about the right settings).
Are there any plans to implement the In-Reply-To header?
In-Reply-To headers require a redesign of the notifications package. Our recent changes improve upon the headers but can't achieve everything without an overhaul of the notifications package.
Such an overhaul would require all packages that depend on notifications to change too. Matt mentioned that he would like to further improve notifications but I don't know what his time table is.
