Hi Alex,


Can you verify the followings?   I have this running on Ubuntu 10.x server.


1. install postfix (if already not done it)

apt-get install postfix


2. Edit Postfix configuration to reflect your setting, check sys admins for email setting.



vi /etc/postfix/main.cf 

alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases

! if you 

relayhost = your-email-server-address 




3. Edit Rancid configuration.  


vi /home/rancid/etc/rancid.conf







4. Edit aliases configuration, step # 3, LIST_OF_GROUPS=ADMINS" (this an example) must match the aliases configuration.

 vi /etc/aliases

# Added by installer for initial user

rancid-ADMINS: myadmins at mydomain.com
