#1290 closed defect (fixed)

Postfix refuses to properly execute

Reported by: jeff.minard@… Owned by: bas
Priority: normal Component: EmailtoTracScript
Severity: normal Keywords: postfix
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


So, I got email2trac from SVN (today) and I am running 0.10.3. I got it installed and running and can successfully execute the email2trac < msg.txt command.

However, when I try the email test command mail trac < msg.txt , I get a bounce from Postfix. Here's my alias file and the bounce message:

The relevant portion seems to be this:

 Command died with status 253: "/usr/local/bin/run_email2trac" 

Perhaps you are more in tune with that the exit code 253 means?

Sorry but the trunk version is not stable. It has some untested features and is not finished yet, So could you try the stable version?
