Re-queueing based on sending domain

Hi all. Just wondering if any of you have developed a canned Scrip that
does this:

  • OnCreate, checks the domain name of the sender to pattern match
    against queue names
  • Moves the ticket to the appropriate Queue, based on match, else stays
    in general queue

I realize the pattern match part is the hardest part and I have
purposely left it ambiguous.

Has anyone else sought this kind of behavior?

How do others of you handle ticketing based on company account? I have
also seen that I can create a custom field and call it “Company Name” or
something, and that each ticket could be manually assigned to the right
company name.

Aha! Patrick, I hadn’t thought of that. That’s a good idea, although
it does add some complexity on the administrative side of things,
because we’d have to add a procmail rule each time we create a new
queue. Sounds like the best route though, since there would be no
mistake about which domainname belongs to which queue.
