Support Tickets - Email End User
Hey again guys!

I had a user enter a support request the other day, and was pretty surprised why a week later they hadn't followed my advice. Turns out, they hadn't realised that I'd replied to their support request because although it sent me an email telling me that someone had requested support, they were not emailed when I updated the request. Its one of those funny things I didn't notice for myself because I've never entered a support request! I have since tested and found that no email was sent when i updated my own support tickets.

Have I just missed something in my configuration, or does ISPConfig just not email the user concerned when their support requests are updated? Perhaps the user has to do something to let ISPConfig know their email address? I do always enter one in the email field when i create a new client. I've tried looking through the manual, but have found no info there.

I've just had a look at the source code. Mails should be sent when someone writes a reply.

What's in your mail log when you write a reply?

Xtreem1986 25th March 2007 17:09

Oh completely forgot about this.

My customer's email: dan_davies_2k4[at]
My admin email: admin[at]

I created a support ticket with my customer, and received an email from dan_davies_2k4[at] to admin[at] I went and made a reply, and dan_davies_2k4[at] never got a reply!

Here is the log of the mail sent when I made the request:

Mar 25 15:04:44 apollo postfix/qmgr[10489]: 8186140102: removed

Then I logged in as admin and made a reply!

The clue seems to be "CBD7D40102: to=<unknown>". Any help will be very appreciated!

Is the client's email address displayed correctly in ISPConfig? Is it even saved in ISPConfig?

Xtreem1986 26th March 2007 18:33

Yeah, it's set in ISPConfig (Master Data for the Client). When I (admin) get sent an email telling me there is a new request it appears to be from the user that submitted the request.

falko 27th March 2007 17:25

I've put it in our bugtracker so we will check it.

gavro 16th April 2007 01:43

I am having the same problem here... PLUS: I also have the same problem when a user replies to you reply once again. No email is sent.

When the admin replies to a support ticket, I get the following line in maillog:
Apr 16 00:32:56 production sendmail[22437]: l3FMWuEM022437: from=admispconfig, size=250, class=0, nrcpts=0, msgid=<200704152232.l3FMWuEM022437@production.vhos>, relay=admispconfig@localhost

When replying as user the a reply from admin I get the following line in maillog:
Apr 16 00:34:19 production sendmail[22590]: l3FMYJdf022590: from=admispconfig, size=286, class=0, nrcpts=0, msgid=<200704152234.l3FMYJdf022590@production.vhos>, relay=admispconfig@localhost
(which is actually the same...)

In other logs nothing in particular is written.

I'm wondering: is this a bug, or a 'feature'?

till 16th April 2007 08:53


as falko posted above, he had added the bugreport to the bugtracker. The problem seems to be that there is no from header set in the mail command.

falko 11th May 2007 02:47

I've just fixed it, so it will be available in the next ISPConfig release. :)
