#6899 closed enhancement (fixed)

Improve handling of CC and BCC hearer information

Reported by: MattyRob Owned by:
Milestone: 2.6 Priority: high
Severity: normal Version: 2.5.1
Component: General Keywords: has-patch 2nd-opinion
Focuses: Cc:


The $phpmailer class is currently used to enable sending of emails through the wp_mail function defined in wp-includes/pluggable.php

The wp_mail function handles some header information before passing the rest through the AddCustomHeader function.

My plugin (subscribe2) uses the BCC header to send an email notification to a list of users when a new post is made. RFC 2822 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2822.txt) lists some restriction over the character length of any header and I'm not sure if AddCustomHeader deals with this limitation.

By adding some code to pluggable.php we can make better use of the AddCc and AddBcc functions to create better email headers.
