Email-in category notifications should send "To" that address


(Michael Downey) #1

As an admin, I want to be able to specify the To: field on email notifications from a category that has an admin-specified email-in address, so that when people move from a mailing list to Discourse, they’ll be able to keep their inbox rules.

In other words …

  1. Current mailing list messages are sent From: <sender@example.com> and To: <list@example.org>.
  2. Discourse notifications for category “Foo” would be sent From: User Name <discourse@example.org> and To: <foo@example.org>.

This way, when I move my foo@example.org mailing list over to Discourse, users will still be able to process emails To: <foo@example.org> with the same labels, folders, etc.

Notifications for topics in the Uncategorized “category” would use the email-in address specified for Uncategorized.

Notifications for categories without a specified email-in address should be the default To: <recipient@example.com> that is used currently.
