Email Notifications based on If-Then Statements

Is there an option within JIRA 4.2.4 to configure email notifications with if-then statements in addition to a specific event?

For example,

event = issue assigned

'if (reporter = john) and (assignee = joe) then notify jane'

You have to override standart Jira notification system by custom issue listener with injected or dinamically obtained (ComponentAccessor.getMailQueue()) component MailQueue.

With this component you can add MailQueueItem objects in standart mail queue as standart notifications did.

it works like that :

final Email email = createEmail(); //create email object in your code here
        AbstractMailQueueItem item = new AbstractMailQueueItem(email.getSubject()) {

            private final Logger log = Logger.getLogger(AttachmentusListener.class);

            public void send() throws MailException
                SMTPMailServer smtpMailServer = MailFactory.getServerManager().getDefaultSMTPMailServer();
                if (!MailFactory.isSendingDisabled())
                    if (mailThreader != null) mailThreader.threadEmail(email);
                    if (mailThreader != null) mailThreader.storeSentEmail(email);

And you have to manually fill VelocityManager context for generating email body. Here you can use default template path but it is tricky to mimic default notifications velocity context and I recommend use custom email templates.

You seem to be on OnDemand and I am afraid that such customizations are not supported there. Otherwise Jamie's script plugin could probably let you achieve your requirement.
