      Description

      Our app needs to be able to send and receive email.

      WHY

      We intend to move our daily development to this Apache-hosted Allura instance, and therefore need email handling to be working correctly.

      SENDING

      Outbound email is for sending notifications to subscribed users when tickets and other artifacts are updated. At this time, Allura does not have a mechanism for detecting or otherwise handling bounced email.

      RECEIVING

      Inbound email is parsed and used to automatically updated discussions on tickets and other artifacts. We have a custom python smtp server for handling inbound email to the app (port is configurable). The inbound addresses will need to be wild cards all the way down to the sub-domain level. Here's an example inbound address:

      123@tickets.allura.p.allura-vm.apache.org

      Email sent to that address will update artifact 123 on the tool named 'tickets' in the project 'allura' in the neighborhood 'p'.
