RT EX_TEMPFAIL receiving email ticket?

One of our users reported receiving a warning message in reply to
sending a ticket to RT via email. I know it’s not much to go on at
this point, but I had confirmed that RT could receive emails, so I’m
just wondering if the following transcript fragment suggests anything
I may have misconfigured …

RT server error.

The RT server which handled your email did not behave as expected. It
said:

temporary failure

“|/opt/rt3/bin/rt-mailgate --queue general --action correspond --url
http://feed2.xmlteam.com:8008/”… Deferred: prog mailer
(/usr/sbin/smrsh) exited with EX_TEMPFAIL
Warning: message still undelivered after 4 hours
Will keep trying until message is 5 days old

If you are sure that the queue and URL specifications are correct, I would
also check:

  1. does the user have permissions to reply/create (depending on what this
    e-mail would do) in this queue?

  2. that the size of the e-mail does not exceed the limitations set in either
    the RT config or the database.

This may be it … one of our sysadmins deleted the General queue
and I will bet that the email tries to direct to a queue that is
non-existant!

Thanks for the tip; I’ll check that out.
