Reply via email as comment

Hi all,

I’ve been asked by my support team to configure RT to treat replies via email as comments, for a single queue only. I’m new to RT and don’t really know how to do that!

Specifically, when staff reply to a ticket notification email, they do not want that reply to go to the requestor.

I had thought that having the default ‘$QUEUE’@example.com be the ‘comments’ email in my /etc/aliases might work, but that means no tickets are created when sent to that address.

I don’t think setting the $SetOutgoingMailFrom and OverrideOutgoingMailFrom are quite what I need.

Is this something I should be doing as a scrip?

Apparently, they’ve had this working previously, from a different sysadmin, then RT was upgraded to 4.0, and it hasn’t worked since. Of course, no-one remembers how it was done, and there was no documentation made!

Thanks for your time!

You should be able to create tickets when sending mail to a --action
comment email address. I do it. If you want to know what’s wrong,
you’ll need to show your config and logs.

Alternatively, you can just disable all the On Correspond Notify
Requestor (and CC, and one time recipients) in that Queue, which would
mean that nobody could ever send them email from that queue.
