How to configure mail sender (Spammer) with custom properties.
I have a situation where I'm using an SMTP server that needs some custom properties set on the mail properties (mailProps field in the Spammer class).
For now I've hardwired these additional parameters by modifying Spammer, but it may be worth looking at a more generic way of allowing custom properties to be added to the Spammer. Maybe have a custom file of additional properties or something similar.
If you think that this is a good addition, I'd be glad to do the work and submit a patch for trunk.
Can you give an anonymized example of the properties you would like included?
The easiest way would probably to have a new property in SystemGlobals.properties (something like "mail.smtp.properties"), and to have that made editable on the Configurations page to accept a value like "prop1=value1, prop2=value2".
Sure, In my case I required a couple of extra properties that I couldn't determine how to set:
Agreed, the proposed solution sounds good to me.
Makes sense. Unless you really want to dig into the code and submit a patch, I think I can add such a feature next week.
I'm already quite familiar with that class, I had to do a bit of work on it to get my server running.
I'll prepare something in the next day or so and submit. Where do you prefer the patch.
I'm more used the git workflow these days, forgotten most of my svn knowledge.
Cool. There's no need to use svn, apart from the initial checkout. Please open a ticket on SourceForge and attach the patch to that: https://sourceforge.net/p/jforum2/tickets/
