#147 closed setup (wontfix)

Strip Domain Name

Reported by: David Kirk <davidrkirk@…> Owned by: bas
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: email2trac Version: 0.80
Keywords: Cc:



I'm using Trac .11.5 internally and we are using Active Directory to authenticate. I can log in to Trac as david with my AD password.

When I send an email and email2trac picks it up, the Reporter is shown as "David Kirk" <david@…>.

Is there a way with email2trac or postfix to remove all the excess stuff and the domain name and just leave david as the Reporter?

I've been doing some searching, and found that if people go in to Preferences and set their email address that it should fix it, but a lot of our users just won't bother with that.

The best solution is to set the preferences value. There are some tools/plguings to manipulate it as admin user. I think there are also some efforts for better LDAP/AD integration So that the email addresses are fetched from LDAP?AD. This is also on my todo list to look for a patch or plugin.

email2trac for now can not strip the domain value and a possible solution for postfix could be trivial-rewrite module
