Autogenerated headers

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/social Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runboat

This module was written to mark Odoo’s emails as being autogenerated according to RFC 3834, section 5. This allows receiving mail servers to act accordingly by for example not sending a vacation autoreply.

On the receiving side, this module drops all notifications for autogenerated incoming e-mails.

The combination of both avoids possible mail loops with misconfigured or broken email servers on the opposite side.

Table of contents


There’s nothing the user has to do. Developers can set the context flag mail_autogenerated_header_disable in calls to send_email in order to suppress adding any headers at all, and override _message_route_process_autoreply to fine tune dropping autogenerated mails per model.
