[sieve] Fwd: New Version Notification for draft-bosch-sieve-duplicate-02.txt

2013-04-07 11:47:06

I made a new version of the "duplicate" draft. It should address the comments by Ned, Kristin and Alexey. I added the example I gave to Alexey.

This resulted in quite a bit of restructuring in the description of the new test command, so it is best to review at least that section entirely.

There is one thing I thought of and haven't addressed so far. My current implementation makes a new entry in the duplicate tracking list irrespective of whether one exists already, overwriting the old one and thereby resetting the expiry time to whatever is configured using ":seconds". This will make example 3 in the draft yield unexpected results; if duplicates arrive within the expiry time, the total expiry time is in effect extended. The semantic difference here is that the expiry time is either measured relative to the initial message or relative to the last duplicate. This means that the 30 minutes in the example can stretch indefinitely if duplicates keep arriving before the expiry deadline. So, for the scenario of example 3, such behavior is quite obviously wrong. However, would there be an application for having the expiry time be relative to the last message received with the specified ID rather than the initial one? How would we accommodate for that?

A new version of I-D, draft-bosch-sieve-duplicate-02.txt
has been successfully submitted by Stephan Bosch and posted to the
IETF repository.

Filename:        draft-bosch-sieve-duplicate
Revision:        02
Title:           Sieve Email Filtering: Detecting Duplicate Deliveries
Creation date:   2013-04-07
Group:           Individual Submission
Number of pages: 10

   This document defines a new test command "duplicate" for the "Sieve"
   email filtering language.  This test adds the ability to detect
   duplicate message deliveries.  The main application for this new test
   is handling duplicate deliveries commonly caused by mailing list
   subscriptions or redirected mail addresses.  The detection is
   normally performed by matching the message ID to an internal list of
   message IDs from previously delivered messages.  For more complex
   applications, the "duplicate" test can also use the content of a
   specific header or other parts of the message.
