When an user receives a notification from a group, the email does not display the name of the group, se he doesn't know the origin of this post without login to bewelcome.

It should be nice to add that feature.

If the information in which group the post happened is easily accessible this can be done as part of #1982.

The way to correct this and 1982 is not exactly the same: in the mailqueue is written a subject, but groups are treated as a forum thread. so the group name is not present in the queue, it should be written in the module that feed the queue. I try to see if for saturday i have some ispiration, but i would keep separate this part.

Please test locally using a fakemail service and calling htdocs/bw/mailbot.php airectly from the command line.

works locally for me. note that i don't have fakemail entirely working so i only checked the message subject/text/from with debug strings, but this shouldn't affect the situation. i also just made up a forum_trad database with random values in order to be able to get sensible content.

Added the groupname to the subject as well to make threading more consistent:

Subject looks like this now:

[Re: ]Thread title (group name)

Not good, should appear as:

[group name] Thread title

or in case of reply

Re: [group name] Thread title

otherwise in case of long subject it is difficult to find, and more important, it become more difficult to filter (in cas onme wan tto have archived separately the various groups)

At the same time putting a long group name in front of the subject might hide the information about the thread itself which I believe to be of higher interest as the post itself will contain the group name as well.

If the mailer is able to filter for '[group name]' at the beginning of the subject and in case of replies the position of the group name shouldn't matter anymore.

right. i would like , for a future release a check that if group name is less that 15 char go in front otherwise on tail. Personally i never, on any platform, made group names more than 15 characthers ... so i never thought about this. but the group name should be in square, not round brackets !

Okay, fixed the brackets.
