Hi Alex,

Yes we do install from source and use /opt/rt3813, /opt/rt4210, /opt/rt441
as the install point based on the source. For the test instances we typically
configure their Email to deliver to a single file and we can check what was
sent within the RT history. Delivery could be controlled in many diffferent
ways based on the Email system delivery process.
