Resending lost messages to Redmine¶
When Redmine goes down, emails sent to Redmine don't get automatically resent.
Messages sent to
firstname.lastname@example.org are both redirected to
email@example.com, but also a copy is kept on the albizu server for 30 days. To resend messages that never made it to maple, one must connect to albizu.
Using Thunderbird (easiest):¶
Set up an IMAP account for firstname.lastname@example.org. SMTP/IMAP server is
mail.mayfirst.org. Username is "tickets", password is either in creds, or reset it from the MFPL control panel.
You must have the Mail Redirect extension installed.
Select the messages you want to resend in the mailbox, click "Redirect", and enter the e-mail address of "email@example.com".
mutt doesn't require any setup, but can only redirect one message at a time. In theory you could speed this along by making a macro in muttrc, but that's beyond what we need IMO.
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org mutt :set sort = reverse-date-received 1 #go to first message b #for "bounce", aka redirect email@example.com # alternatively, send to firstname.lastname@example.org if need be
