Description

I find the rt web interface a huge impediment to doing anything with tickets. Is there a way I can interact with rt via email only?

I have basically ignored rt because the web interface gets in the way of doing any with the system.

I know that there is a way to interact with RT via email only, but I don't know how easy it is to set up or how long it'll take to do so. I wonder if more people will help with support if I do spend time on setting up RT-email-stuff, or if it's just you.

When we first set up RT, weasel and I decided that he would do server-stuff and I would do web-stuff. Setting up RT-email requires access to the server, which I don't have. Do you want to set up this yourself, give me access to the server, or should we drop this completely?

To give you an idea of what we would need, here is /etc/aliases from another group using RT via email:

#
# RequestTracker -- se http://itk.samfundet.no/dok/RequestTracker

itk: "|(/bin/sleep 5s ; /usr/bin/rt-mailgate-3.8 --queue itk --action correspond --url https://rt.samfundet.no/)"

I'm starting to think rt is not going to scale well, so killing this request for now.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
