Qmail configuration

Hi!

I just successfully installed RT3.0.5 on RH9 with Postgres + FastCGI +
SendMail on a new machine. It seems it working fine on the browser side
except for the mail gateway. I have a separate Qmail server where all our
emails are forwarded to. My problem is how can I configure RT to use the
Qmail from another machine.

I checked the mailinglist and I found your perl script (i’m really don’t
about perl programming). Can I use your script for this kind of setup?
What other things should I need to configure?

I already posted this but nobody is responding.

Simplest would be to configure your qmail server to forward the RT mails
to sendmail on your new machine.

Alternatively install the rt-mailgate perl script on your
qmail server and arrange for qmail to invoke it with the appropriate
arguments and URL for your RT webserver.

e.g.

rt-mailgate --action correspond --queue queuename --url
http://rt-webserver-host.domain.name/

As far as I can quickly tell you only neet Getopt::Long and LWP::UserAgent
modules on your qmail server.

Correct. We designed the mailgate to be able to run on a minimally
configured perl on your mail server for just such an occasion.

Hi.

I have a separate Qmail server where all our
emails are forwarded to. My problem is how can I configure RT to use the
Qmail from another machine.

I’d also say that forwarding the mail from qmail to Sendmail would be the best
solution.

I checked the mailinglist and I found your perl script (i’m really don’t
about perl programming). Can I use your script for this kind of setup?
What other things should I need to configure?

I’ve written this script for installations of qmail and RT on the same server.

If you decide to use this script in a setup like this, you can find the
current version at http://konfido.de/misc/software/.
If you have problems with it, I’ll try to answer your questions.

Best regards,
Matthias

I’m sorry for this. I’m really a newbie. Our qmail server was previously
setup by an old employee. Right now I’m the one maintaining it and
learning from it (I live from others help). Can I have a step by step
instruction on how to do this forwarding. Really RT installation is quite
frustating but I’m growing from it (i learn a lot already).

Thanks

This is how it setup in my environment, solaris 8

create a file .qmail-support as user alias in your qmail server and add this
entry in the file support@rthost.domain

then in the rthost have an alias for support. And make sure you have an entry in
the /etc/hosts file of your rthost that points mailhost to the qmail server

Thats it.On Sat, 4 Oct 2003, Rommie wrote:
