Bounce question

Hi, I've been trying to get the system to manage bounces but to no avail. I've setup the MX and everything and done the modifications to openemm as described but still it does not catch them.

Can I confirm somethnig - if I send uot using an email address that is not mine (on behalf of someone else for example) the bounce will not work because the bounce will return to the other domain, or does openemm catch the bounces whatever it has been sent from?

Basically, is it that everything works fine but what I'm trynig to do cannot be done?


Now fine!

Okay, it's a strange old world. I ran out of time and had to do a live send and the bounce management worked!

How did i make it work

Making it work took me about 20 hours of debugging c sources, python sources and sendmail config.
Some tips:
-verifify that the sendmail's mc config file have the line :

Code: Select all

at the end of the other mailers
-verify that u have installed gdbm module for python (in some distributions, python dont have this module by default)
-in the interface u have to make a bounce filter ; after u make it u will see in the overview of the filters that a email address have been created :
where # is a number and maillop domain is the bounce domain u can set beside the rdir domain (e.g. in the sql script or directlly in the database (company_tbl , maillop_domain field)
After u make this filter u should use the address openemm generated as sender address in the mailing.

Hi sfantul,

we just opened the OpenEMM Wiki ( Please feel free to publish tips, articles, guides to share your knowledge with other OpenEMM users - if you like!

For example the input for the Debian install guide was provided by forum member minichip.

Thank you!
