rt-mailgate works only in local email


Hello,

I'm using slackware 11.0.0. On that machine I have email server installed, on another server I have RT system. In email server in /home/vpopmail/rt I have script called rt-mailgate, and in /home/vpopmail/domains/mydomain/ I have those files:
.qmail-default
[
I think this one doesn't matter
]
.qmail-rt
[
|/home/vpopmail/rt/rt-mailgate --queue general --action correspond --url http://rt.myrt.lt/
]
.qmail-rt-comment
[
|/home/vpopmail/rt/rt-mailgate --queue general --action comment --url http://rt.myrt.lt/
]

The problem is, with local domains emails reach the system, but from other domains like gmail, yahoo and others it doesn't, those systems report back an error "email rt@mydomain.lt doesn't exist". It's actually true, it doesn't exist, when I run /usr/local/bin/make_mail_cdb in a list of registered emails that one doesn't appear, what should I do that other mail servers would be able to see that email?

Hey again,
I solved it myself.
Solution was, that I had to add alias in my email server and to avoid loop I had to create another route for mailgate, so what I did exactly was:
create 2 more files similar to .qmail-rt and .qmail-rt-comment, and i named them .qmail-rt2 .qmail-rt2-comment with exactly the same content, so at this point I have two mailgates to my rt system with rt@mydomain.lt and rt2@mydomain.lt. So as delivery was working localy perfectly, at this point I needed to let know remote hosts of that email address existance, so I went where I can add alliases and put:
rt@mydomain.lt -> rt2@mydomain.lt. As I've mentioned before it was necesarry to avoid loop, now when email comes from remote, it can see that there is an allias for rt@mydomain.lt and than server delivers message locally through second mailgate.

P.S. I don't believe it's a normal solution, it's just a workaround, if anyone knows a real issue how can I add my prefered address to the list provided for remote hosts, please let me know, thank U
