we have an on-premise setup that uses Office 365 as the email provider for sending notification emails. Notification emails have been sent out as " firstname.lastname@example.org". Since a few weeks all notifications mails are received as “Gitlab email@example.com”, where “Gitlab” is the name of the email account, configured in Office 365 with which we are sending the mails. We have made a quite a bit of research and have come to the conclusion that nothing has changed in Outlook 365 so we suspect one of the recent gitlab updates to be the culprit.
Here is our config:
gitlab_rails['gitlab_email_enabled'] = true gitlab_rails['gitlab_email_from'] = '[obscured]' # gitlab_rails['gitlab_email_display_name'] = 'Gitlab' #gitlab_rails['smtp_address'] = "[obscured]" gitlab_rails['smtp_address'] = "smtp.office365.com" gitlab_rails['smtp_enable'] = true gitlab_rails['smtp_port'] = 587 #gitlab_rails['smtp_port'] = 25 gitlab_rails['smtp_user_name'] = "[obscured]" gitlab_rails['smtp_password'] = "[obscured]" gitlab_rails['smtp_domain'] = "[obscured]" gitlab_rails['smtp_authentication'] = "login" gitlab_rails['smtp_enable_starttls_auto'] = true gitlab_rails['smtp_tls'] = false gitlab_rails['smtp_openssl_verify_mode'] = 'peer' # Can be: 'none', 'peer', 'client_once', 'fail_if_no_peer_cert', see http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActionMailer/Base.html #gitlab_rails['smtp_ca_path'] = "/etc/ssl/certs" #gitlab_rails['smtp_ca_file'] = "/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt"
We have switched on the “Include author name in email body” option, in order to be able to see the author at least after opening the email.
Does anybody has a clue what could be the cause for this and how to get it fixed?
Thank you in advance,
