How to set the correct Reply-To: address on generated emails

When a user sends an email to help@myhost.mydomain, he gets back an email
from rt@localhost.mydomain. Obviously, this causes problems when the user
tries to reply.

/etc/aliases has:
rt-comment: "|/usr/local/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate --queue general --action
comment"
rt: "|/usr/local/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate --queue general --action
correspond"
help-comment: "|/usr/local/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate --queue general --action
comment"
help: “|/usr/local/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate --queue general --action
correspond”

I’m using postfix for my MTA.

In config.pm, I have set :
$MailAlias=“help@myhost.mydomain”;
$CorrespondAddress=“help@myhost.mydomain”;
$CommentAddress=“help@myhost.mydomain”;

I have stopped and started Apache.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,
Kieran

how did you configure the correspondence address in Configuration/Queues//Basics ?On Wed, Jul 18, 2001 at 03:02:53PM -0600, Kieran Rhysling wrote:

It gets set to the default on queue create, iirc.On Wed, Jul 18, 2001 at 03:14:46PM -0600, Kieran Rhysling wrote:

Oh, geez. I knew I was doing something stupid. :stuck_out_tongue:

I didn’t configure that but somehow (during install maybe?), it got set to
rt@localhost.

Thanks,
Kieran
