Webrt replies not mailed to requestor


#1

Hello,

I installed RT a couple of nights ago and everything seems to be working
great, except one little detail (which happens to be a very important
one).

Using the web interface, replying to a request does not request in an
e-mail sent to the requestor. There are no error messages and no entry in
our mail log, web server error log, etc. However, if I CC the reply to
someone, the CC does go through which makes me believe I don’t have a
sendmail problem. Any quick ideas why the mail does not get sent to the
requestor? Anything else that you may need to know to help?

Verion info as requested by the FAQ included below.

Could this be the problem. Note that the header below shows a blank "To:"
address. I CC’d the reply via webrt to bill@daze.net. I received the CC
but the requestor did not receive the reply.

One other thing that I left out before. I have autoreply turned on and
the requestor does received the autoreply.Subject: [RTS #3] (test) did that change do it?

You should know that if the requestor is a queue member, they won’t get the requestor copy.On Tue, Sep 12, 2000 at 04:26:31PM -0700, bill@daze.net wrote:

You should know that if the requestor is a queue member, they won’t get the requestor copy.

The request is coming in via e-mail from an unrelated third-party
domain (the e-mail address of the requestor is on a different machine far
far away). I’m testing this as if an actual user was sending us a request.

Currently I’m looking at mail.pm subroutine template_mail.
$in_recipient is blank. I am trying to trace back where template_mail
gets called. Any hints?> On Tue, Sep 12, 2000 at 04:26:31PM -0700, bill@daze.net wrote:
