Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.3 Administration Guide Configuring Notifications for Changes in Message Status

You can configure a notification message to be sent when an email message has changed status.

Information Delivered in Message-Flag Notifications

A message-flags notification is produced whenever a status flag has changed because the email message was:

When a message-flags notification is sent, the notification carries the following properties:

This information is carried in two properties, oldflags and newflags, which are 5–character strings.

For a description of the values of these two properties, see Syntax for newflags and oldflags Properties.

Configutil Parameters Needed for Message-Flag Notifications

To enable message-flag notifications, you must configure the following configutil parameters:

The first MsgFlags parameter enables the IMAP server and message store to identify and track the changing values of the status flags so that this information can be delivered in notification messages.

This parameter applies to all notification plug-ins. Therefore, you must enable the parameter if any notification plug-in uses message-flag notifications. If no plug-in uses message-flag notifications, be sure that this parameter is disabled (its default value).

The second parameter, *.MsgFlags.enable, allows message-flag notifications to be sent for a particular plug-in library.

Note –

You must configure both parameters to enable notifications for message flags.
