Modified from: address in replies

Dear list,

We have an RT server v 3.8.7 with a queue per customer. For one queue
we want change the default from: address.
I’ve tried this with a customized template with:

from: support@ourdomain.com

in the first line but this does not work.
Other suggestions?

Thx,
P.

P,

That should work. If the template is in that Queue and the name is the same
name as what is normally used by the Global scrips, then that template
should override the Global one. We use that same idea (except it is the
"To:") for some specific Users (QA Tester) listed in a Custom Field called
"QA Approver":

TICKET INFORMATION:
Queue : {$Ticket->QueueObj->Name}
Number : {$Ticket->Id}
Priority is: {$Ticket->Priority}
Requestor : {$Ticket->Requestors->UserMembersObj->First->Name}
Created by: {$Ticket->CreatorObj->Name}
Created on: {substr($Ticket->Created, 0, 10)}
Owned by: {$Ticket->OwnerObj->Name}
Development Started on: {substr($Ticket->Started, 0, 10)}

Could you show what that template looks like, at least the first few lines?

Kenn,

Thanks for your answer.
For that queue we use a blank template, with the Name’Blank’ and on
the first line of the Content:

that’s all.

I think you just want to change the Correspond Address on the queue
admin page. No need for template hacking.

We want to change the from: address, not the reply-to: address.
How can we do this?On Wed, Aug 25, 2010 at 4:25 PM, Kevin Falcone falcone@bestpractical.com wrote:

They’re both set from the correspond address variable available
globally or on a queue level.

If you need to change ONLY the From: line (which is not the question
your original mail asked) then the template solution is your best bet.

OK: we have an request address for all queues, let’s say
help@ourdomain.com, but for one particular queue we want to set a
different from: address when our helpdesk dept. replies to the
customer, eg: support@ourdomain.com.
How can we establish this?On Wed, Aug 25, 2010 at 4:55 PM, Kevin Falcone falcone@bestpractical.com wrote:

Go to the Queue Admin page for that queue, check the correspond
address.

You mean the “Reply Address”? Only the reply-to: address is changed on
our server, not the from: address.On Wed, Aug 25, 2010 at 6:15 PM, Kevin Falcone falcone@bestpractical.com wrote:
