Well, when the alias fed the message to it, it barked. 'unknown mailer error 1' says the log. Ran it with the sample file, worked fine; even modified the testcase a little, still fine. Hmmmm... So I added a line to the script, so it would open a file and write it's current path, and very carefully detailed EXACTLY where this file lived, having a suspicion. BARK! Although it still barked like a dog, it gave me my confirmation; when executed by an alias, it thinks the cwd is '/'!!! I modified the script to point EXACTLY to the location of the recipient file of the data, and all was now well, either way.
HHMMMMMMMMMMMMM..... is this a freebsd quriosity, a sendmail quriosity, or what all? And is there anything I can do so the cwd will be the dir the script is living in?
