Comment #10 on issue 1343 by chris.a....@gmail.com: forging a
user's 'From:' address in email notifications is incompatible with
DKIM/mail filtering/review list moderation
I'm still having issues with this on ReviewBoard 1.6.5. Our company uses a
hosted MS Outlook service. Here's the trace from the logfile (with subject
and email addresses changed):
Error sending e-mail notification with subject 'Re: Review Request:
Subject' on behalf of '"John Doe" <j...@example.com>' to '"Joe Blow"
<jb...@example.com>': (550, '5.7.1 Client does not have permissions to send
on behalf of the from address')
Traceback (most recent call last):
line 231, in send_review_mail
line 251, in send
line 86, in send_messages
sent = self._send(message)
line 104, in _send
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/smtplib.py", line 707, in sendmail
raise SMTPDataError(code, resp)
SMTPDataError: (550, '5.7.1 Client does not have permissions to send on
behalf of the from address')
The "Sender e-mail address" in the admin settings is
reviewbo...@example.com. In the past I've had to "get around" this by
setting every user's email address to match that, and just tell everyone to
make sure they include the group mailing list on their reviews, but
obviously that sucks. Is there a way to configure reviewboard such that it
just does a standard From using that value and does not use "sender"
headers to make it "on behalf of" the users? Setting up the mail servers to
allow sending on behalf of other accounts is beyond my control.
