FW: Mail delivery failed: returning message to sen der

Thanks,

Yes, that’s exactly what my RT alias looks like. In my mail logs, I’m
getting the same error as referenced below, "generated |
’/opt/rt/bin/rt-mailgate new_york comment’: Child process of address_pipe
transport returned 69 (could mean service or program unavailable) from

What does your rt alias look like? It should be:

rt: “|/opt/rt/bin/rt-mailgate new_york correspond”

Frances

Has anyone ever encountered this problem? (See below). It happens
whenever I send mail to rt@my.domain.

I’ve checked the permissions and owners on rt-mailgate and they appear to be
in order. rt-mailgate is an alias pointing to suid_wrapper. suid_wrapper
is owned by rt, group root and permissions —s–x--x.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I’ve often found that running grep mail.info or mail.log
often returns useful information. I don’t know what the return of 69 means,
but in the mail logs, a more useful error message may exist- for example, no
permissions to execute that file, a problem I had when using smrsh with
sendmail.

Thanks J.D.,

I’ve guessed that this is not an Exim problem. Mail seems to be flowing
fine. Unfortunately, there is not a clear error logged in the mail logs or
Apache logs. I think this is a problem with suid_wrapper.

Any other ideas?

George

The purpose of this message is to update the mail list with the solution to
this problem (see thread below).

According to the Exim FAQ (http://www.exim.org/FAQ.html#SEC34):

“I’m trying to get Exim to connect an alias to a pipe, but it always gives
error code 69, with the comment “(could mean service or program
unavailable)”.
A0033: If your alias entry looks like this:
alias: |”/some/command some parameters"
change it to look like this:
alias: “|/some/command some parameters”"

Sincere thanks to everyone who took some time to respond to or even read my
query.

Also, I have been wondering if there has been an effort to setup some kind
of paid support for RT installations, ala LinuxCare? Just curious if there
is a market for it. I know that our company would be willing to pay for
some support.

Thanks again,
