    Hi

    Im using Debian Lenny and ISP Config 3.0.2.2

    I was using ISP Config 2 and had a few procmail recipies running, I am trying to convert them into maildrop with mailfilter but have hit an issue.

    If I use the web interface to add a custom rule, the file is saved in

    /var/vmail/mailfilters/domain.com/user1/.mailfilter

    but has been saved in dos format e.g.

    oslo:/var/vmail/mailfilters/domain.com/user1# file .mailfilter
    .mailfilter: ASCII text, with CRLF line terminators

    When a mail is recived I get a syntax error in the mail.log file.

    If I run dos2unix on the file

    oslo:/var/vmail/mailfilters/domain.com/user1# file .mailfilter
    .mailfilter: ASCII text

    and the script works perfictly.

    Is this a bug? any idea of a work around? I can create the file manually but am worried about it being overwritten by ispconfig

    Cheers

    Paul

    Hi

    Think I have found the problem, I have been doing this with Internet Explorer, I just testing with Firefox and the problem does not occur!

    Does anyone know if its possible to stop IE using CR+LF when posting a textarea field?

    Cheers

    I was not aware of this odd behaviour of IE. I've added this to the bugtracker so we do the conversion in ISPConfig.

    WindowsXP SP3 IE8, create filter:
    Code:
    mail:/var/vmail/mailfilters/domain.tld/mark# file .mailfilter 
    .mailfilter: ASCII text
    WindowsXP SP3 FF3, create filter:
    Code:
    mail:/var/vmail/mailfilters/domain.tld/mark# file .mailfilter 
    .mailfilter: ASCII text
    Ubuntu FF3, create filter:
    Code:
    mail:/var/vmail/mailfilters/domain.tld/mark# file .mailfilter
