hi, thnx for the quick reply
No we use RT::Authen::ExternalAuth rather than externalauth for ldap.
(internal users only)
the users have been created as valid users in the RT
database, RT just seems to have an issue locating them and allowing them
send the mail in.
Other mail users that are setup as both valid users and privileged are
even though they don’t exist in ldap.From: declaya email@example.com

Bugging me for days, I’m sending an email to RT to create a ticket,
the address already exists in the database.
I send it, it fails and I receive back 3 emails
- “User creation failed in mailgateway: Name in use”
- “User ‘xxx@xxx’ could not be loaded in the mail gateway”
- “RT could not load valid user”
the log output

in use (/opt/rt3/bin/…/local/lib/RT/Interface/Email.pm:244)
this has happened on more than one occasion and ive been through quite a
few possible fixes? and have run out of ideas,
can anyone shed some light on exactly what is going on?
are you using the RT-ExternalAuth plugin? I got similar error massages when
it was not configured correctly. Have you tried to turn it off?
I can only tell from my research, it doesn’t need to be correct, but maybe
RT tries to check if the user already exists and - if we assume that you use
ExternalAuth and your config is somehow wrong - it can’t get access to the
My second guess: Have you double-checked all users in your db at the
frontend? Try to search after a % in the name and you will find all
Hope this helps!
