Change RT email address

Good day to all:

I am in the need to change the email address which RT works with. The email
which receives and send the email. Can some one provide information on how
to do so?

RT 4.0.7 on Debian.

Richard Pacheco

Hi Richard,

What email adress would you like to change ? Is it the one used by a
queue when commenting or responding to a ticket or the one used by RT
system ?

For the first part of my answer, check out in the queue configuration
directly in the WebUI, for the second part, check out the
RT_SiteConfig.pm file and the Set($SendmailArguments and the
Set($FriendlyToLineFormat, lines.

Hope it helps,

Regards

There is a regular expression in RT_Config.pm. Look for it, read the directions, and then make any needed adjustments in RT_SiteConfig.pm (not RT_Config.pm.) Make sure that it matches the new email address and the old one. It’s important that it handle both, so that you can account for both existing and new tickets.

Also, make sure that the old address forwards messages to the new one. Otherwise, when end users reply to an old ticket via email, it won’t get processed properly.

I’ve done this twice since I started using RT back in 2001. RT can definitely handle it if you have a decent email server that can handle forwarding, etc.

It IS what you said. Its just that what I wrote refers to both files,
so I wanted to be clear about which one to edit (RT_SiteConfig.pm) vs.
use as reference (RT_Config.pm). Sorry about any confusion I may have
caused.

I tried adding the following with no luck to the RT_SiteConfig.pm

Set($RTAddressRegexp , ‘richard@newemail.com)$’);
Set($SendmailArguments, “-oi -t -f richard@newemail.com”);

Obviously I am doing something wrong.

Perhaps I did not explain the issue well:

Just for explaining: richard@oldemail.com is a Team inbox.
richard@newemail.com is a Distribution list.
Originally we wanted to use the Team Inbox address, anything created via
email, the Inbox will receive a copy. We noticed that the emails are not
getting send to our Inbox. When trying to add the Inbox as AdminCC in
Watchers, we received the mail loop error. So we need to change the RT
Internal address to richard@newemail.com so we can use richard@oldemail.com
as AdminCC.

The RT Internal email address is configured with richard@oldemail.com. I
cannot use the richard@oldemail.com anymore. I need to change it to
richard@newemail.com.

I have verified that all references to richard@oldemail.com has been
updated etc, but i still receive an error of a mail loop (when testing
richard@oldemail.com) as AdminCC.

Thanks in advanced.

Hi everyone:
sorry for the late reply.

The email I need to change is the email rt works with. For example I want
to use Richard@test.com as Admin cc, it states it will create a mail
loop. There is no other user, with that email.
I have tried changing the RT_SiteConfig.pm, searching the database, etc.
No luck
Thanks in advanced.

Well, I think what you wanted to do was feasible by creating a RT user
with the Team inbox or the mailing list address as the contact address
of the user. Next, you add the user as an AdminCc of the wanted queue.
By default Rt has global scrips that send email to AdminCc users when an
action is done on a queue (create, comment, answer, move, close a ticket).

Be sure to use a different address or domain name for RT’s
administrative adresses (addresses used by the queues, or else) and set
the regexp accordingly.

I don’t if that I said was clear enough,
