Auto responder empty "FROM:"

The messages comming from the ispconfig3's are without the "From:"

look on this header:

Message-Id: <>
X-Authentication-Warning: vmail set sender to <> using -f
Subject: Auto Response: from
Precedence: junk
Auto-Submitted: auto-replied
Mime-Version: 1.0
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"

is it a bug or have something that I can do to fix it?

if i cant place the real sender i can place something like

just to fill the From:

You can take a look at the maildrop script in /var/vmail/mailfilters/.... which handle the autoresponder.

i fixed it changing the .autoresponder file

`test -f /var/vmail/mailfilters/$HOST/$USER/.vacation.msg && exit 1 || exit 0`
if (!/^List-Unsubscribe:.*/:h )
if (!/^X-Spam-Flag: YES/:h )

# The following must be one contiguous line
cc "| mailbot -t $RESPOND -d $RESPONDDB -D 1 \
-A 'From:' -s 'Auto Response: from $RECIPIENT' \
/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -f ''"

i found a bug...
the From: was $RECIPIENT, so this variable is imput...

please tellme wich php file generate this .autoresponder then ill edit it to generate a line like this:

-A 'From:' -s 'Auto Response: from' \

cause i need smt automatic, i cant go there and edit the file for all clients that want to enable autoresponder..

thanks ;)

But the variable $RECIPIENT contains normally the recipient of the email, so the script is correct. If $RECIPIENT is not set on your server then you can either check to make sure that the second parameter of the maildrop script returns the recipient or you use the $HOST and $USER variables to built the recipient like this:

-A 'From: $USER@$HOST' -s 'Auto Response: from $USER@$HOST' \

i think it is a bug, im running ispconfig on 5 different servers...

2 running on fedora 8 (i know i cant do that, but i did)

3 running on fedora 10

all of my servers i tested autoresponder and it worx, but without the FROM, with the variable empty.

all of then i just found these infos on about maildrop

maildrop_destination_concurrency_limit = 1
maildrop_destination_recipient_limit = 1
virtual_transport = maildrop

could you please tell me where is the file on ispconfig that generate the .autoresponder o i can edit it, then the next generations will be correct, maybe i can use the example that you gave me using $user@$host

or, maybe something that i can place on my to start filling the $RECIPIENT var.

thanks *again*
