Anyone Using RT with Qmail


#1

Hi all,

I have just configured and installed RT. The only problem I am having is
with the MailGate. I use Qmail instead of Sendmail.

Can someone explain to me how to get the mailgate working ?

In ~alias/.qmail-rt put:

|"/usr/local/rt/bin/rt-mailgate"

With the right path and username for the alias of course.

You can setup additional aliases for commands, but I didn’t bother with
those as my users only use the web interface.

Hm, I’ve used qmail once … you should create one file for each
mailing alias … I think it should be named somehting like
~alias/.qmail-myalias … and I think it should contain one like this:

|/dir/to/rt correspond general

I might check it up better if this doesn’t help you.

…and when you have created that file, you have to do a `chmod a-w’ at
the file before it starts working.

The good thing with qmail is that ordinary users very easily can use the
same method for setting up their own mailing aliases and/or queues, i.e.
if you make a file ~tonywa/.qmail-todo that points to a queue tonywa-todo,
all mail to tonywa-todo@is.co.za goes into this queue.
