[Raw Msg Headers][Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Found an example! See below.

I also checked the smtpserver log. The said log shows that the MAIL
FROM: line is just <Jose.Artigas@Corp.Sun.COM>, but it seems that at
some point in the submission process, the envelope from (below) is
instead getting set to the first line (and *only* the first line) of
the HEADER From:.

SO, having finally figured this out (gads, I'm thick...to the
gentleman who reprimanded me for my original post on this topic, you
were correct, and I must learn to be less sharp-sounding in future), I
tried to figure what would cause this behaviour... after all, Zmailer
was using MAIL FROM: as its' envelope from, right?

Then I looked closely at the headers, and it hit me in the head: it
wasn't Zmailer at all...but rather PHQuery! When not provided a sender
address on the command line, it hunts for it in the headers...and it's
hunting-code was only grabbing the one line!

So, I am now invoking phquery thusly:

phquery   Efnm		/usr/zmailer/bin/ta/phquery phquery $u

The 'f' flag should provide a '-f <sender>' to the command line (and
phquery does know to look for that)...we'll see if that clears it up.

I'll go bake myself some crow, now...
