[rt-users] Fickle owner changes

Well, after a bit more reading I managed to get into and edit the config file. NotifyActors was set to 0 and I changed it to 1. It still will not send after I take ownership.

Now since I changed the config file, will I need to restart RT for it to take effect? And if so, how do I go about that? Regrettably, I was not the one to set this system up and the one who did is gone =\

I'll keep poking through the FAQ/Manual for an answer.

Thanks for the help thus far.

I think you were on the right track with your first attempt, using the On 
Owner Change condition. Bear in mind that if you have the config variable 
NotifyActor set to 0, you will not get notified of your own updates - this 
may be why  the mail isn't being sent to you when you take the ticket.

http://wiki.bestpractical.com/index.cgi?FAQ under Mailgate gives more info. 
It implies that Autoreply actions WILL send mail regardless of the 
NotifyActor setting, so perhaps if you could create an "Autoreply to Owner" 
action, it would do what you want.
