Did you put or link rt-mailgate in /etc/smrsh? This is more or less
required (out of the box) when running rhel I think… Its been a long
time since I set up ours, but were running rhel3 and I distinctly
remember this ‘problem’ and the solution was to link from /etc/smrsh
among some other sendmail tom foolery.

How about using rt-mailgate manually? Can you create tickets that way?
How about the rt logs?-----Original Message-----

Hello John,

Yes, I followed the instructions very closely… copied rt-mailgate to
/etc/smrsh

I can enter tickets manually thorugh the RT GUI but the RT mail piece is
prety much broken. Sendmail itself seems to be just fine though. Don;t
know how to manually run rt-mailgate. Following is a maillog entry and
running rt-mailgate manually that hung. I’m sure I used the wrong syntax
though. /opt/rt3/var/log is empty. Other logs I should look at?

Try something like:

[jpriddy@rt smrsh]$ cat /etc/aliases | /etc/smrsh/rt-mailgate

–action correspond --queue techsupport --url http://youripaddresshere

This should create a nobody:nobody ticket with no subject and contents
of /etc/aliases in this case. I know on my system i have to have the
ipaddress for url on /etc/aliases, it would not play nice with just
putting rt.domain, maybe you have the same issue?

As far as the logs you need to create a /opt/rt3/var/log/rt.log and give
it www:www ownership (check your siteconfig for details on setting this
up).On Thu, 2005-09-01 at 12:05 -0400, Frank Saxton wrote:

Thanks again John!

I think I have my e-mail and my GUI issues straightened out now. I wish I
could say for certainty what fixed everything but I can’t. I made some
minor changes to httpd.conf and /opt/rt3/etc/RT_SiteConfig.pm which seemed
to take care of it.

It was definitely not /etc/smrsh/rt-mailgate though. I seem to recall
going down that same rat hole last time too :frowning:

Don’t know if it was one specific thing or a combination of little things.
I didn’t make any particularly astounding changes. In any case, RT seems
to be a happy camper, at least for the moment.

Thanks again!
