Your RT log should have error message that correspond to this. Look
in /var/log/messages (assuming a reasonably common syslog
configuration), and make sure you’re logging debug priority messages.
In RT_*Config.pm:

Set($LogToSyslog , ‘debug’);

(But note recent messages to this list regarding the performance
impact of logging at this priority level).

You should be able to trigger this problem on demand in order to
diagnose it. Get a copy of the message that triggered the error, and
then pipe it to:

/opt/rt3/bin/rt-mailgate --queue ‘IT Helpdesk’ --action correspond
–url http://rt.con.com/

You should see useful error messages either on your screen or in the log.

Hi
I am currently getting this error on all messages.

There is no errors in messages or rt.log. Just maillog.

When I try

echo hello |/opt/rt3/bin/rt-mailgate --queue ‘IT Helpdesk’ --action
correspond --url http://rt.con.com

I get
An Error Occurred

404 Not Found

Which file was not found. No errors anywhere when I try this. Not even
maillog.

I assume pointing a browser at http://rt.con.com leads to a working RT
installation? If not, this is your problem.

Are you redirecting http requests to https with a rewrite rule?

The url in the command needs to be valid and accessible from the local
interface, dns and all. If your hostname is pointing to 127.0.0.1 from
the local machine you’ll have to add that IP to the apache configuration
or remove the hostname pointing to localhost in /etc/hosts … Personally
I have all my interfaces bound except localhost, so you’ll have to make
sure there’s no local host definition overriding the real dns.

Ok

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I have now fixed this and I
understand what and why.
