eh.. or on the RT host itself before/if we dont switch DNS over

..because it is a subdomain of,

@Chase : on magnesium, create a new file in /etc/exim4/aliases/ called "", then just alias lines like:



i tested a bit. so this is works:

on magnesium, add to /etc/aliases (not /etc/exim4/aliases/foo), it is configured like this:

"# Use the system aliasfile /etc/aliases for system domains" and is a system domain

i temp. put my own email address there as an alias for the unused legal queue, then sent a mail to the RT queue from zirconium.

magnesium delivered it to polonium and i received it just fine. (i got a permission error that i cant create tickets in that queue, but that is not what we are testing :)
