Implement an email function for users.

Description (last modified by rgrp) (diff)

We need an email function in CKAN to accept messages sent to users. The basic signature will be:

  • mail_user(user_obj, subject, body, mime_type='text/plain', headers={})

This has a number of use cases:

  • Retrieval of lost passwords
  • E-Mail confirmation

Finally, the mail function should be exposed in the API for sysadmin clients. This way we can have scripts traverse CKAN for 404s, invalid data or missing fields and ping users about that automatically (requires traversal by revision, not package, to get the associated users).


Note we have already written code like this (*and* tested it) in isitopen:

Not sure we need exposure this via the API (at least at this point) as things like auto mass emailing could be in done in separate component (that talks to CKAN).

This was done in branch feature-1198-mailer. No tests - ticketed here: #1222.

Additional feature in this branch 'password reset' was ticket #1186.
