User stories

You can reproduce the following stories in the roger demo project.

  • In Explorer ‣ Office ‣ Outgoing mails you can see that there are 64 rows, all very similar. These welcome messages were generated by the demo fixture of the outbox plugin.

  • Double-click on a row to see the details.

  • Every message has a single recipient. Most email recipient addresses end with, which is special: Lino does never actually send an email to an address ending with but skips the last step and just logs a message “Ignored recipient Berta Ernst <>” in your lino.log.

  • The Sent: field is empty and you can click on the envelope button button to send it.

  • As a server administrator you can click on the envelope button button even when the message has already been sent. Lino then asks you “This message has already been sent on (…). Are you sure you want to unsend it?” and, if you answer “Yes”, will clear the Sent: field.
