Receiving SMIME encrypted e-mails: openssl not getting key passphrase through SMIME_PASS


we’re using RT 4.4.4 on apache with mod_perl. We’d like to receive SMIME encrypted e-mails. All seems to be configured correctly, but when openssl is executed to actually perform the decryption of the e-mail, it complains about not being able to read the environment variable SMIME_PASS which is set just before the call to the correct passphrase (in the perl script that spawns the openssl process). The command and all arguments to call openssl seem fine otherwise.

Anybody can help with this?

Thanks a lot!

We fixed it with switching to mod_fcgid instead of mod_perl.

Interesting. Was that the last mod_perl or some older?
Thank you, Petr
