Sendmail error with delivery


#1

I am noticing some weird errors during the last 3 days pop up in the root
mailbox on my Linux box. Did rt recently change the To: address it uses.
Here’s what shows up:

Eric,

There is a new section in config.pm as of version 1.3.70

RT can optionally set a “Friendly” ‘To:’ header when sending messages

to

Ccs or AdminCcs (rather than having a blank ‘To:’ header.

This feature DOES NOT WORK WITH SENDMAIL[tm] BRAND SENDMAIL

If you are using sendmail, rather than postfix, qmail, exim or some

other MTA,

you must disable this option.

$UseFriendlyToLine = 0;

I think this will fix your problem.

Isuspect htat what happened is that scrips finally started working again.

You’re running sendmail brand sendmail…Per the config file, you must
tell RT to turn UseFriendlyToLine off.On Fri, May 18, 2001 at 12:22:07PM -0400, Eric Mandel wrote:

I wonder about that. What counts as ‘running’? I think I have the
same problem. (Described earlier.)

But I’m running Exim on the RT2 server and sendmail on the "incomming"
MX server.

What is that ‘:;’ thing in ‘Owner of WorldNow Ticket #197’:; anyway?

It’s pseudo-mailinglist syntax, so your MTA knows not to interpret it
as an actual address, but only as a comment.
