New article on Wiki: How to install RT on Ubuntu 6.06
I've just created an article on the wiki describing the steps necessary to set up RT on Ubuntu 6.06.
The setup I describe sets up RT to authenticate against the active directory and retrieve email from a googlemail pop3 account.
I don't go into any detail about setting up an outgoing smtp server, as the system makes use of the local sendmail service, so if you want to alter that you will have to look elsewhere I'm afraid.

If you need to send mail from an ubuntu machine, the simplest way is to setup 'ssmtp'.

The reason I didn't go into any detail is because many RBCs/LEAs provide different methods of accepting and sending email. For example Somerset County Council allows sending of email only via their Exchange server which runs SMTP, and then it has to be authenticated.

So I have a smarthost setup in postfix to relay mail from the servers via the exchange server using my user account.

Well email would be it's own wiki article. I was just point out that ssmtp will work for most people who want to get mail of their *nix boxes. All you have to do is tell it where your smarthost is.
