In our environment, applications use port forwarding to avoid using root to start up web services. Port 80 and 443 are forwarded to higher port numbers. This setup does not work with the rdm-mailhandler because it assumes the port number. I created a patch to fix this. The attached patch adds a port option to the rdm-mailhandler.

Doesn't protocol://host:port/path work with the mail handler?

Ah, yes, that works too. I'm not sure why I thought that option wasn't working. I revisited it and have confirmed host:port works fine. I must have been conflating it with other issues now resolved. Thanks.
