Variables in delayed notification mail.

Guy-749
Hi,

I'm using a slight variation of the default delay notification
template which includes things like $delay_warning_time_hours and
$maximal_queue_lifetime_days.

A lot of users (ours anyway) won't read past the word "MAILER-DAEMON"
so if it's possible I'd like to be able to make the subject of the
delay notification include the subject and/or from address of the
message that has been delayed. Are there variables for any of the
headers (subject/from address specifically in my case) of the delayed
mail that can be used in the template?

I suspect it's not possible, but it doesn't hurt to make sure.

Thanks
Guy

Citing the bounce(5) manpage:

       o      Template message headers do not support $parameter expansions.

And:

       The second portion of a bounce template consists of  message  text.  As
       the  above  example  shows,  template  message text may contain main.cf
       $parameters. Besides the parameters that are defined  in  main.cf,  the
       following parameters are treated specially depending on the suffix that
       is appended to their name.

       delay_warning_time_<suffix>
              ...
       maximal_queue_lifetime_<suffix>

Postfix does behave as documented.
