It’s not that enhanced-mailgateway is unmaintained, but that it’s not
something I currently have the resources to maintain as a free service to the
public. While I always appreciate contributed bugfixes and improvements to
the enhanced mailgateway (or any of RT’s code,) I’m not really sure what new
functionality you’re offering. I based enhanced-mailgate on a very recent
version of rt-mailgate and the code for the latter hasn’t changed
substantially since then. For this reason, “Porting” from enhanced-mailgate
to rt-mailgate is not really a useful service to the community. It is
my intent to integrate the functionality of enhanced-mailgate into
the core rt-mailgate somewhere down the line, when I have the resources
and the command mode has been better tested and better worked out.
If you're interested in having me do the development to make
enhanced-mailgate what you want it to be, or if you’re interested in
purchasing support for it, email me privately and we can work something out.)

We have installed RT and we are planning to use it in prod soon. Sending
commands by mail would be a BIG plus.
We have evaluated enh-mailgate which seems broken and unmaintained.
Our proposal is:
If we develop them, would you integrate in normal-mailgate the following
- adding a command-line to enable sending commands in the mail (disabled
- modifying mailgate to grab the user: - first step, from the sender
(not safe, but working)
- second step,
by using PGP authentication
- adding command parsing in mailgate (from enh-mailgate)
- adding command treatment in mailgate (from enh-mailgate)
All this would be disabled by default, to let mailgate be on the safe
We will accept the little risk presented by someone sending mail on the
behalf of someone else. We really would LOVE this functionality.
Thanks for any comment.

As I sit here alone looking at green text on a laptop in a mostly bare room listening
to loud music wearing all black, I realize that that it is much less cool in real life
