Parties should be notified of these events:
- when a message is rejected (sender)
- when a message or a reply is received (recipient)
New in version 3.4.0 With the default templates provided within the application, a text-only email is sent. If you want the email to be in HTML format:
- Create the .html version.
- Override the .txt version (otherwise the template provided by default applies) with either:
- a non empty content of your design.
- or an empty content, meaning by convention a fallback to the .html content with all tags stripped.
An email is sent, using these templates:
postman/email_visitor_subject.txtfor the subject
.htmlfor the body
The available context variables are:
site: the Site instance if the "sites" framework is installed, otherwise a RequestSite instance with a fallback to None in the case of the API
object: the Message instance
action: 'rejection' or 'acceptance'
Default templates are provided with the application. Same as for the views, you can override them, and design yours.
Special case: In case of a rejection by the auto moderation feature, the user is immediately aware of it, so there is no need for a notification in addition.
If a notifier application is configured (see Quick Start Guide), the following labels are used:
postman_rejectionto notify the sender of the rejection
postman_messageto notify the recipient of the reception of a message
postman_replyto notify the recipient of the reception of a reply
Some extra context variables are passed in the call to the notifier application and so are available in the templates:
pm_message: the Message instance
pm_action: 'rejection' or 'acceptance'
pm_site: the Site instance
If no notifier application is used, an email is sent, using these templates:
postman/email_user_subject.txtfor the subject
.htmlfor the body
In that case, the information about context variables and templates is the same
as in the
For visitors section above.
