( Note that although I respond a lot on rt-users, I’m not a personal help
desk. Jesse does that in return for the foldable stuff ;). Shifted
back to rt-users. )
Thanks for the information, I have done the same thing as u mentioned.
Iam not sure whether Iam correct, Iam figuring out here the entire the
scenario…please correct me , if Iam wrong.
RT installed in 192.168.0.17 system. (Redhat 7.2)
Mail Server installed in 192.168.0.3 (Redhat 6.2)
I’m going to refer to these as ‘RT’ and ‘Mail’ respectively.
RT Installed System:
In 192.168.0.17, where I have installed RT, I edited the sendmail.cf and
SmartHost of the Mail Server 192.168.0.3 (DS 192.168.0.3)
I have also added the cron activity for flushing the mail queue.
Yes, this will clear up the mail that RT generates (ensures that it gets
In the aliases file I have added the following content,
rt: "|/usr/local/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate --queue general --action correspond"
rt-comment: “|/usr/local/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate --queue general --action
The trick that you need now is to deliver mail to the RT system. You can
do this via one of two methods:
a) Install RT also on the Mail server, and ensure that the
configuration of RT (config.pm) points to the RT server
($DatabaseHost) *and* that the mysql rt_user on the RT server
can connect from the Mail server.
b) Run sendmail on the RT server (accepting connections or from
inetd), and have the RT aliases on the Mail server read (lets
assume you're example.com):
The RT server's sendmail is configured to only accept mail for
'rt.example.com' (or whatever name you want that is seperate
from your main mail; remember to keep the RT addresses
@example.com in the configuration so you don't have the RT
server's mail port exposed to the outside)
In the Mail Server 192.168.0.3, I have created two pop users rt and
Unless you install RT on the Mail server, you don’t need any rt-specific
users on the Mail server
