I’m wondering if I could get some advice for modifying the domain on
e-mails that RT sends.
I just want to shorten it from:
I have a semi-related issue. Our rt instance lives on a box called
"nairobi", but we set up an IP alias for it called “rt”. So if you send
mail to "firstname.lastname@example.org", it will arrive in the right place.
And I have set up the queues in rt to think that their
correspondence/comment addresses are in that form, "email@example.com".
But when RT sends out mail, it always comes from "firstname.lastname@example.org".
Anyone know how to make RT send mail from the address the way I set it up?
Or does the MTA step in and change it, so it’s out of RT’s hands? (In which
case, how do I make sendmail leave it alone?)
Well, one way to fix this is to have the MTA know who it’s supposed to
identify as. If you’re using sendmail, there’s a line in your
my official domain name
… define this only if sendmail cannot automatically determine your
Uncomment the last line, change the “$w.Foo.COM” part to “yyy.zzz” or
"rt.blah.com" and restart sendmail. You should get what you want from
p.s. If it’s not sendmail, I wouldn’t know my elbow from a hand grenade.
