Notification from name change #update


 

Hi All,

Previously, most group notifications were sent with the From name being "(group email address) Notification", like:

From: main@beta.groups.io Notification noreply@groups.io

I have changed that to just "Group Notification", like:

From: Group Notification noreply@groups.io

The reason is that, some email clients, like Gmail, will take any sender name/email address and add it to their contacts. Then, when starting to type an email address to send a message to, Gmail would end up matching on the email address from these group notifications names. That would mean that the message would be sent to noreply@groups.io instead of the proper group email address.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Mark

With this change in place, it's not possible to determine which group a notification for a rejected message comes from as the subject tag is not used as a prefix as in other notifications:

I could see this being a problem.

I concur that a Subject Tag should be added to all affected notifications.

Another possible way, wouldn't adding back the group address but in a non-standard way and suffixed to the changed "Group Notification" text also resolve this? 

i.e.  From: Group Notification from Main at beta.groups.io noreply@groups.io

Cheers,
Christos

This should be fixed.
