Help: using RT with a gmail acct

Hi All,

I've managed to get RT to send emails using a gmail account, but now I'm trying to get it to read emails.

If understand this [email/mta/mua/etc] all correctly then I have to have my own mta (as described here: http://www.spencerstirling.com/computergeek/email.html) so that the mail will be delivered properly to RT 

RT will not go out and read a mailbox -- is this correct?

thanks

RT will not go out and read a mailbox – is this correct?

RT contains neither an MTA nor a MUA.
It hands mail off to an MTA to be delivered.
It expects you to invoke rt-mailgate with mail, whether than be via an
MTA, or in your case, via something like fetchmail that can read from
gmail.

I have fetchmail sucking in emails from gmail, and pushing that to
rt-mailgate.

it’s pretty easy to setup.

Install fetchmail, get it running as per it’s instructions and config it
something like this

poll imap.gmail.com proto imap port 993:
username youraccount@gmail.com password yourpass ssl mda “/perl
rt
-mailgate --url --queue --action ”

I am pretty sure you have to log into the gmail account and turn on imap
for you to be able to use fetchmail in imap mode…

Hope that helps!
