Reference line of e-mails sent shows e.g. only [Maniphest]
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Currently an e-mail one recieves from Phabricator contains only [Maniphest] or the like. I believe it will be nice to have some additional reference added so I get something like e.g. [Wikimedia] [Maniphest] to avoid ambiguousness. Thank you for considering.

Could you please specify which "additional reference" you are thinking of, which ambigiousness you're currently facing, and why the sender address is not sufficient to avoid ambiguity?

Currently the e-mail just says [Maniphest] coming for numerous senders which I may not know at all. The sender is shown as AKlapper, gerritbot, idonotknowwho. So what happens if another project I am participating with comes up with the idea of using Phabricator too? Basically I would like to know which project emitted the e-mail, e.g. Wikimedia. That's why I suggested [Wikimedia] [Maniphest] or the like.

Bugzilla was nearly equally messy however always used bugzilla-daemon@wikimedia.org. However, perhaps it may be done better here.

You can filter mail on the sender address which is <no-reply@phabricator.wikimedia.org> which is also always used.

<no-reply@phabricator.wikimedia.org> is not shown but Aklapper etc. so I did not realise it is using the same e-mail. Guess it will still be nice to directly see where it is coming from. Yeah, probably filtering it away locally into a distinct folder like Wikimedia will do the job as a workaround. Won't get into fisticuffs over this. :)

I'm crossing fingers that your email client also allows you to filter on the sender email address itself.
But for most people I've talked to this works, hence closing as declined. Also, most people rather ask for having less information in the mail subject, not more. :) See T650 for the related discussion.

It does perfectly, so no worries here. I guess I just have to wait till this issue pops up for others. I am sure it will and patience is going to pay off eventually. :)
