Description (last modified by bas)


I am trying to use email2trac using your instructions for postfix from here:

The problem is that email2trac returns "error: option --project not recognized" and the ticket is not created. In addition, email fails and returns back to the sender with the output of email2trac.

I use the latest version and python 2.7.3

Any ideas?

  • Status changed from new to assigned
  • Type changed from defect to setup

First question: How did you install email2trac?

Did you do a test on the command line without run_email2trac. There is a test message included in the source tarball:

  • email2trac -n -d --project <name_of_project> < msg.txt

This is a dry-run and some debug will appear in the console.

Thank you for your support. I found the problem. It was a conflict with TracPrivateTickets? plugin. Now my problem is that it creates the ticket but returns an email back that the email has failed with message : "Command died with status 1: "/usr/local/bin/email2trac --project=smsp --ticket_prefix=t-support"

I would appreciate your help.

Today is my day off. We have a new King in Holland ;-). But first of all in need some info why it crashes. Maybe there is something in your syslog or another file (trac.log). Without any info i can not find why it crashes.

Enjoy your day off and I appreciate your prompt reply :-) I think I found the problem but not the solution yet. We use agilo for trac and it fails to create a ticket as you can see at the attached file I send. This is the output when I run email2trac with a modified version of the msg.txt as input. If you have any idea it is welcome. It is not so urgent though, we can discuss it after your King's coronation :-)

Thank you.

Did you applied the patch? I can make an option for it so it will work for Agilo environments
