Rt2 (2.0.11) with exim - small problem - sending mails out

Hi there,

i know ist not an really rt-specific question, but i kindly ask how to
setup the exim for sending out mails correctly from rt ?

incoming mails works fine, without any troubles, but if I send an mail
via the cli it does not sends anything:

2002-01-10 08:05:32 SMTP connection from localhost [127.0.0.1]
2002-01-10 08:05:32 SMTP connection from localhost (xx.xx.at)
[127.0.0.1] closed by QUIT

that’s all I can find in the log…

Any eximusers here which can help me at this point ?

Thanks

chris

Are you using the ‘sendmail’ transport or the ‘sendmailpipe’ transport?On Thu, Jan 10, 2002 at 08:10:20AM +0100, Christian Steger wrote:

  • Are you using the ‘sendmail’ transport or the 'sendmailpipe’
    transport?

actually i call directly the binary so the sendmailtransport.
I have read a few lines already that some directly commands from exim
are not 100% compatible, is therefore the sendmailpipe per
smtp-connection
rather recommendet ?

thanks jesse!

Sorry. What I actually meant was: what is $MailCommand set to in config.pm?
I’d probably recommend ‘sendmailpipe’, rather than ‘sendmail’.

Also, what options are you passing in $SendmailArguments?

And, just to make sure, have you set up the relevant Scrips, as recommended
in the Installation guide? If you don’t RT won’t send any mail at all.

thanks jesse!
