Description VK freebsd_triage 2016-11-13 11:27:01 UTC
There's a few issues with the way Bugzilla sends out and manages automated mail.

* Bounces should go to a MONITORED inbox (currently bugzilla-noreply@) so we (triagers, bugmeister) can have an insight into non-received notifications

  - Would facilitate automated lookup of unmaintained ports that could be taken over

* Reply-To/From needs to be a separate address from Return-Path

  - As notifications are sent out to many people for many reasons, it would enable people to reply and ask about it or report a problem

* The "X-Bugzilla-URL" mail header lists the tracker front page URL instead of the related issue URL, it would be better if the actual issue is URL'd
