Answer email From: headers should not use

Bug #244693 reported by Richard Laager on 2008-07-01
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

Emails generated from Launchpad Answers have a From: header that looks like this:
    From: Richard Laager <email address hidden>

Instead, this should be like bug mail:
    From: Richard Laager <email address hidden>

Both email types have a correct Reply-To, so replies already work correctly. (However, bug emails show a "real name" portion of "Bug 1234" whereas answers do NOT have "Question 1234".)

Aside from being technically wrong, the practical impact of this is that replying to a question with Evolution will lead to an Automatic Contact (an Evolution feature) being added with the asker's real name but the question address instead of their actual address.

Changed in launchpad-answers:
importance: Undecided → Low
status: New → Confirmed
