Rt-mailgate problem

I have set up rt-3-0-beta-2 (or rt-2-1-75 ) on a Solaris 9 box. This
installation is working fine with mysql.
I am trying to test the functionality which allows creation of new tickets
via an email. It doesn’t
seem to work.

I am running sendmail and RT on the same server for ease. In my
/etc/mail/aliases file i have got these entries

rt: "|/opt/rt3/bin/rt-mailgate --queue general -action correspond
–url http://localhost/ "
rt-comment: “|/opt/rt3/bin/rt-mailgate --queue general --action comment
–url http://localhost/

I have given Everyone pseudo group permission to create ticket to queue
general.

The sendmail works fine as i can send mail otherwise. But mail sent to rt
doesn’t create a new ticket.

On testing , I get the following error

bash-2.05$ cat ./test

From root@localhost Fri Feb 28 15:33:13 2003
Message-Id: 200302280533.h1S5XDeb006125@localhost

Internet host table

bash-2.05$cat ./test | /opt/rt3/bin/rt-mailgate --queue general --url
http://localhost/ --debug

An Error Occurred

405 Method Not Allowed
This is /opt/rt3/bin/rt-mailgate exiting because of an undefined server
error at /opt/rt3/bin/rt-mailgate line 200, <> chunk 1.

Can anyone Help !!

“-action” should be “–action”.

Sorry ! That was a typo in my email. The actual entry is --action.

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

Ok I know that i’m replying to myself, but i found the error what has
caused this.

It was a misconfiguration of my apache 2.
In Apache 2 you must have the following entries in the httpd.conf
<FilesMatch “.html$”>
SetHandler perl-script
PerlHandler RT::Mason

<LocationMatch “/REST/”>
SetHandler perl-script
PerlHandler RT::Mason

<LocationMatch “/Attachment/”>
SetHandler perl-script
PerlHandler RT::Mason

If you try to fetch with a browser
http:///REST/1.0/NoAuth/mail-gateway
and get only text on your screen, your apache is configured wrong.
If instead you get an MASON error, it is probably configured the right way.

Make sure your MTA has permissions to deliver mail to RT’s mailgate.

As far as I remenber you need SMRSH for sendmail, and or setuid-perl for
other MTA’s

Cheers, rhb

Hi Rasmus,

Thank you for your help !
You are right, That is a setuid-perl problem. I fixed it according to FAQ.

Thanks
