P4DTI issue job000489

TitleMail recipients are not very configurable
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionThe replicator sends e-mail messages to various addresses at various times. See [1]. This is only configurable in very coarse ways (with smtp_server and administrator_address). It would be nice if you could, e.g.
- send all email to the administrator only;
- send conflict reports to the job owner only;
- not send the startup message at all;
- send the startup message to some other alias;
- send poll failure messages to some other alias.
AnalysisCould give a keyword to each of the email circumstances, and to each of the classes of recipient, have some sort of map from keywords to lists of recipient keywords and/or addresses:
mail_config = {'startup': [],
               'conflict': ['job_owner', 'administrator'],
               'poll_failure': ['operator@somecompany.coom'],
