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

    look on this header:

    Message-Id: <[email protected]>
    X-Authentication-Warning: vmail set sender to <> using -f
    Subject: Auto Response: from
    To: [email protected]
    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?

    Can you please give me some way to place something on the from:
    if i cant place the real sender i can place something like

    [email protected]

    just to fill the From:
    i need something there if i leave it in blank the antispam will move it to junk.

    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 ($RETURNCODE==1)
    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: [email protected]' -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: [email protected]' -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: [email protected]$HOST' -s 'Auto Response: from [email protected]$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 [email protected]$host

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

    thanks *again*
