    55== Description
     
    77This plugin was developed to help local project admins to create information needed before sending notification emails.
    88
    9 Until now it was not possible to change the email address of users or to create  information for users without adding the user to a credentials file, eg when you use LDAP to manage Trac permissions.

    1111The Notice Manager allows to retrieve all information needed either from an LDAP directory - in this case, the methods provided by the LDAP plugin - or a local text file.
     12
     13Go to the Admin page, General, E-Mail. This will show a list of accounts, which are either:
     14
     15 * already registered, or
     16 * mentioned in the Trac-permissions
     17
     18On the right side, you can fill in information, either by entering them manually (Add/Change Notice Info), by getting them from an LDAP directory (Information gathering ... from LDAP) or by retrieving the information from a local file (Information gathering ... local file).
     19
     20The file follows a simple syntax, on one line, list the id, the name and the email address, divided by the ':' sign:
     21{{{
     22foo:Test Account:bar@localhost.localdomain
     23}}}
     24
     25'''Note''': To use LDAP groups for assigning tickets, the LDAP group prefix has to be changed from "@" to "*". If you don't change the prefix, you will not be able to send emails to the LDAP group when assigning ticket responsibilities.
