#1 Postby RickSanson » Apr 18, 2007 6:03 pm

H!!

Desperately working to get the bounce mechanism to work...

Per the instrtuctions, enabled bouce-back in communimail, setup a bounce email mailbox. defined login parameters, all looks correct...

This is installed on my Linux box so no hosted weirdness..

I ran the nohup perl /path/to/bounce_daemon.pl

Hi!

I am using the right path...

/var/www/cgi-bin/communimail/bounce_daemon.pl

I really need some help here please?

Doing nohup perl /var/www/cgi-bin/communimail/bounce_daemon.pl

Simply hangs the terminal prompt (Normal using nohup ruinning a daemon!?!?) there is no output to nohup.out...

I then run perl /var/www/cgi-bin/communimail/bounce_back.pl nothing happens.

What i really need to do is to write the bounced addresses to the bounce_log.txt (If that is whatt it is for)

Please! I need some help here!

As per INSTALL instruction, you need to execute following command:


nohup perl /usr/local/apache/cgi-bin/communimail/bounce_daemon.pl &

(note that there's & at the end)

If you want to add cron job, then:

0 * * * * cd /usr/local/apache/cgi-bin/communimail; ./bounce_back.pl


You also need to enable it in config.

Okay...

1.
What does /logs/bounce_log.txt do?

2.
What should be contained in bounce_log.txt?

2.
The default path defined in "Settings" is different than any other path. Is the default path correct?

3.
When does something get written to bounce_log.txt?

Please help me with this questions! I bought Communimail and need to understand some of the basic functionality of Communimail.

Thank you!

bounce_log.txt will contain following records:

Code: Select all

Contact <$email> was was deleted from database cause he has $bounce bounced emails


This message will be written if some email address is unreacheable (got Mail Delivery Error Report to bounce pop3 account).

The deleting of bounced emails does not seem to be working in my program either. The only files that were in the logs folder were as follows :-

May-2007.1.tar.gz
May-2007.3.tar.gz
May-2007.4.tar.gz
May-2007.5.tar.gz
May-2007.tar.gz

I have now uploaded

admin_log.txt
bounce_log.txt
cmail_daemon.txt

I have previously ticked yes for bounce back system.

Is there anything else that I need to do?

Sorry, been real busy lately and not in here snooping.

User is only disabled after X bounced E-mails. I believe it starts as 3. This is a configurable Parameter.
