It would be very handy if, instead of adding headers like 'Subject' programmatically, JIRA let headers be specified in the email velocity templates.
This would elegantly solve a number of problems, and open new possibilities:
- Subject could be easily customized (
JRA-3568) and i18nized ( JRA-4419)
- We could easily make the Precedence: Bulk header removeable, for users like the ASF where this triggers spam filters
- The From: address could be customized easily (
- Custom headers could be added (JRA-3933,
If this requires JIRA to parse the text to extract headers, we could read the To:, Cc: and Bcc: headers and append their values to the notification scheme targets.
