Email address blacklist

Hi,

is it possible to stop RT from making tickets for emails coming from
specific email addresses?

My problem is, that I configured RT to create a new ticket for each
incoming email and send an autoreply message back to its sender.
Sometimes, sending this autoreply fails for some reason. That causes the
mailer daemon to send an “delivery failed” message back to RT which in
turn causes a new autoreply to the mailer daemon. Now I need some advice
on how I can stop RT from sending an autoreply message to any email
coming from the mailer daemon. Any ideas?

That’s very useful - I’ve been wanting to redirect hostmaster’s email to a
specific queue in RT, but not send tickets back to Network Solutions.

Does anyone know how to extend this to an entire queue so as to make that
queue not send tickets out?From: “Bruce Campbell” bruce_campbell@ripe.net

“Don’t put Scrips on the given Queue that generate mail back to the
requestor” is the obvious answer :wink:

Please remember that RT is an extremely configurable system. What you set
up (in the Scrips) is what you get.

Thanks :slight_smile: Tuesday morning blues I guess.

Hi,

Reading this, I find the problem to be very similar to mailing-list daemons.
One solution is to set the RFC approved field “send-errors-to :” (or
"errors-to:", I don’t remember) to a specific address. RFC compliant mailers
will then send error messages to a specific address wich will be different
from the “reply-to:” or “From:” address.
I don’t really know ho to do this, but I guess it can be done using
parameters in the command line used to fire sendmail.

Hope this helps

Blaise

you’re very confused. Errors-To is several things, none of which is
"rfc approved", and if anything is dis-approved. rfc2822 (“Internet
Message Format”) does not mention it, and rfc2076 (“Common Internet
Message Headers”) goes so far as to say it’s non-standard and not
recommended.

I believe the common complain about it, is that it’s not in the
envelope. which makes it annoying to send bounces to.
