Questions on bounce filters

Post by flyboy » Tue Aug 29, 2006 1:02 am

I moved this out into it's own message so it doesn't get lost...

And if I'm not mistaken, there's another piece to the Bounce handling that I'm having trouble getting to work.

If you send a message out and someone replies to it, the configuration in the Bounce-Filters section of "Settings" should handle this. I'm having issues with this though.

I'm on Fedora Core 5, with OpenEMM 5.0.1. My questions are:

1. What's the deal with the emails addresses "ext_1@", "ext_2@", etc.? Shouldn't you be able to set these up as email addresses that you were using as the "Sender E-Mail" in the mailing? I don't see any user interface to edit these.

2. I've set up bounce handling to go to I test the bav stuff by:

a) sending an email to an address that is not in the Bounce-Filter section (i.e. one that's not in /home/openemm/var/spool/bav/bav.conf and I get a SMTP 550 error. That seems to be correct :-)
b) sending an email to an address that IS in the Bounce-Filter section (i.e. one that IS in /home/openemm/var/spool/bav/bav.conf) and it accepts it, but then I get a bounce message: on 8/26/2006 10:20 PM
The destination system is currently not accepting any messages. Please retry at a later time. If that fails, contact your system administrator.

3. As a side note, the PDF documentation talks about a "Reply-To Address" in the Mailing section. My version doesn't have that, it only has a "Reply-To Full name". Is that documentation that has not been updated, or a bug in the code leaving out that field?

Please see the revised Install Guide which should answer your questions (if not, just post here again.)
