Indeed there are two bugs in 2.99.54 causing this.
- PERL program $MAILBIN/newdbprocessor has bugs at split() function
calls. Essentially there are statements of type:
($scalar1,$scalar2, ... ,$scalarn) = split(' ',$inputstring);
which MAY produce more parts than N with some inputs, and if it
does, then the results will be -- undesired.
The fix is to add 3rd parameter to each split() call telling how
many scalar variables are there for receiving the result so that
the last will get the TAIL of the specifier string, and not just
Nth subpart, which drops off possible important parameters.
- $MAILVAR/db/dbases.conf file does not have '-d pathalias' listed
for the routesdb lookup function
Once those two fixes are done (you are proficient PERL hacker ?), and
you execute command:
then your freshly started router will be able to send all non-local
material into specified smart-host.
