Eliminating the "Greetings, ..." Email Preambles

I’m trying to remove or shorten the various “Greetings, …” preambles
from emails that are sent from RT (everyone using RT is internal and
doesn’t need most of the preambles). However, I can’t seem to get rid
of, or even find where the following message is coming from:
Greetings,

This message has been automatically generated in response to the
creation of a trouble ticket regarding:
<blah, blah, blah …>

This preamble is generated when I create a ticket for which I’m the
requestor (and also, by default, AdminCC’d via the default AdminCC’s for
the queue).

So far:

  • I’ve (saved a copy of /opt/rt3/etc/initialdata as
    /opt/rt3/etc/initialdata.orig and) removed or modified all the
    "Greetings, …" preambles from /opt/rt3/etc/initialdata

  • I’ve searched all files for other occurrences and can’t find the above
    preamble (used find . -type d -exec fgrep -Hi Greetings {} ; from
    /opt/rt3, /Library/Perl, and even /usr/local/src/rt-3.0.2)

I’ve also had a quick look at the database and don’t see it hiding in
there, either.

Finally, I couldn’t find any place where it’s cached (and have even
rebooted the entire server, not just apache).

Looks like I either need a lot of time or some informed help (and I don’t
have much time, right now). #:wink:

Can anyone tell me where/how I can find the source/location for this
preamble?

The email sentt to the requestor can be found in the 'Templates’
configuration. Login as root, click “Configuration”, “Global”, "Templates"
and look at the first one i think it is…

I havn’t done this as I write, but I remember it being in the templates.

Thanks for the (multiple) answers (Configuration => Global => Templates).

FYI, my error was in using a tool that only showed the first line of
content for a given column when I took a quick look at the database …
well, that AND never having delved into any configuration items that
implied customization (but, of course, I did hack the code a little). In
the end, this was a case of “hidden in plain sight.” #:wink: [imagine
the smiley in red]
