Issue #4009 closed

Repo-specific from address for Email services (BB-4161)

Atif Aziz
created an issue

Email and Email Diff services currently send e-mails from the address commits-noreply@bitbucket.org. This creates a moderation issue for public repositories that may wish to send the e-mails to a mailing list. Such mailing lists are typically read-only and configured to only accept posts from known addresses. Once a mailing list allows commits-noreply@bitbucket.org to post messages then anyone can set up the mailing list as the target of their repo's services without the consent of the mailing list administrators/moderators. The Email and Email Diff services should therefore be updated to use a repo-specific from address along the lines of //USER//-//REPO//-commits-noreply@bitbucket.org. I don't think there shuold be any option to change this.
