RT and Mail Gateway

Dear all,
I have installed and configured RT in my system on RH 7.2. It is working
fine.
But for Mail Gateway Configuration

When I try to send a e-mail til support@helpdesk.a-aarhus.dk I get a
reply that delivery is refused.

The maillog on the RT-server gives the following lines:

Is your queue named support or Support? Also, is your $DatabaseHost,
$DatabaseUser and $DatabasePassword correct in config.pm? Does your
$DatabaseUser have the correct permissions (have you flushed your MySQL
cache`s lately???).

Try logging into your MySQL db form the command line (assuming it`s running
on localhost) to see that it is correct.

#mysql -u USER -pPASS

I`m a qmail user myself so this is really just a few quick thoughts… too
many bad memories of sendmail exploits from the past…

I’m not a sendmail guru, but mailer=file makes me think that
sendmail tries to write to a file named “/opt/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate
–queue support --action correspond”, instead of executing it as a
command.

In your /etc/aliases you need a pipe at the beginning, that’s why Sendmail
is trying to write to a file instead of ‘prog’…

Example, here is an entry in mine:

abuse : "|/usr/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate --queue abuse --action correspond"
abuse-comment: “|/usr/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate --queue abuse --action comment”

Also, make sure you have an entry in /etc/smrsh:

[greg@support greg]$ ls -l /etc/smrsh
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 Oct 23 19:07 rt-mailgate ->
/usr/rt2/bin/rt-mailgate

Warning: If your computer has other users who don’t know the password
for your DB, then don’t do that – the password is part of the
command-line, and could be discovered with ps.

Instead just use -p without the password and supply it when prompted.
