Hi Toby,

Thanks for this.
Please confirm, if I understand your method correctly.

1. Instead of resolving the ticket, after getting my tasks done, put in on
stalled and set 'Due date' to next month.
2. the cron job will re-open this ticket after a month.

If the ticket is re-open, will it send out notification?

im doing the rt-list -i "status = 'stalled' AND due <= 'today'"
on a command line but it's asking me for a password.
is my syntax correct?
