Mail from a User Not In Database fails

Hi all,

I have a fresh installation of RT3, and I seem to be having an oddity
with the creation of tickets by non-registered users. Now, I’ve trawled
through RT_Config.pm and have found SenderMustExistInDatabase, which is
false (undef) by default. Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to matter
whether I’ve defined it or not.

System logs report the following error.

May 6 14:00:50 dropbear RT: RT could not load a valid user, and RT’s
configuration does not allow for the creation of a new user for your
email. (/var/www/webrt/lib/RT/Interface/Email.pm:483)

I added a bit of debug information into the error returned by Email.pm
and that tells me that $CurrentUser is null.

Can anyone offer any assistance at all?

I am running RT 3.0.1 on Redhat Linux 8.0 (apache + fastcgi and perl
5.8).

Cheerio,

Andrew

Have you read the manual from http://bestpractical.com/rt/docs.html?

You need to grant unprivileged users some rights to let them create
tickets.On Tue, May 06, 2003 at 02:14:55PM +0100, Andrew Sammut wrote:

That’s the same error I got when group ‘everyone’ didn’t have the
following rights;
