Qmail alias files and command lines


#1

Here’s the deal, see… I have a new box with a lovely copy of Qmail
installed. I have installed the latest RT (looks good, btw) and am
trying to make the mail interface work. I have a ~alias/.qmail-general
file that looks like:

|"/opt/rt/bin/rt-mailgate General correspond"

Fine and dandy, but Qmail dumps to the maillog that the
"/opt/rt/bin/rt-mailgate_General_correspond" file is not found. If I
change the alias file to read:

|"/opt/rt/bin/rt-mailgate"

Then it goes through but I get a response from RT claiming that I don’t
have permission to create entries… probably because there is no queue
specified.

Help, Oh Wise And Wonderful Ones?

Omit the quotes and it should be fine.

And we have a winner! (The other suggestion, putting the pipe inside the
quotes, resulted in Qmail attempting to deliver to a user named
|/opt/rt/and-so-on.) Thank you so very much!

Now all I have to do to finish off this server is to get Evolution to
talk to Qmail’s maildir (the latest release is SUPPOSED to be able to),
set up outside email access, and tighten down security further. Life…
isn’t that bad.

Try this:

|preline /opt/rt/bin/rt-mailgate General correspond

Works for me.  Cheers!
