The email2trac package contains the following utilities:
- Converts an email to ticket. Reads a config file email2trac.conf
- Suid program that changes the MTA-user to the TRAC-user so that we can save attachments
- A small program that deletes the SPAM tickets from the database
Is read by email2trac.py to set the various options. This are the options:
[DEFAULT] # REQUIRED project: /data/trac/bas # REQUIRED debug: 1 # OPTIONAL, if set print some DEBUG info spam_level: 4 # OPTIONAL, if set check for SPAM mail reply_address: 1 # OPTIONAL, if set then fill in ticket CC field umask: 022 # OPTIONAL, Use this umask for saving attachments mailto_link: 1 # OPTIONAL, if set then [mailto:<CC>] in description email_header: 1 # OPTIONAL, if set then show TO/CC fields in description trac_version: 0.8 # OPTIONAL. if set then use this as version number, default 0.9
It depends on your MTA how the setup is. Below is an example of the SARA setup that uses postfix as our MTA.
- Edit Makefile, adjust the variables
- make install
- Copy email2trac.conf to /etc (default location for email2trac.py) If different location use the "-f <config file> or --file=<config file>" to run_email2trac
- vi /etc/aliases
bas: |/usr/sbin/run_email2trac [-f|--filename <config file>]
