I received the below bounce from the [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list tonight, at about 10PM EST.
please note i have obfuscated all email addresses slightly. also note that I have been receiving mail fine from vchkpw, and havnt modified my configuration recently.
the bounce my system sent was:
"user does not exist, but will deliver to /home/vpopmail/domains/jeremykister.co/jeremy/ message is looping /home/vpopmail/domains/jeremykister.co/jeremy/Maildir/ mail is looping"
I am quite stumped on why my mailserver bounce this. I immediately sent an email to [EMAIL PROTECTED] from an outside account, and it was received perfectly -- the fact that I've received this double-bounce shows that my configuration is working.
I keep 8 rotations of 1MB qmail-send logs, and I dont have any record of 'mail is looping' in any of them. the only [probable] record i have of this message is: max> grep 129277 /var/log/qmail/current | tai64nlocal 2003-10-18 21:58:08.502764500 starting delivery 129277: msg 30572 to local [EMAIL PROTECTED] 2003-10-18 21:58:09.792902500 delivery 129277: success: user_does_not_exist,_but_will_deliver_to_/home/vpopmail/domains/jeremykister .co/jeremy//did_0+0+1/
which seems to say that the delivery was successful.
i have a .qmail-vpopmail file which places mail in my "jeremy" maildir. my .qmail-default also does this (among other things). I do not have a jeremy/.qmail file.
max> ls -ld .qmail-vpopmail .qmail-default jeremy/.qmail jeremy/.qmail: No such file or directory -rw-r----- 1 vpopmail vchkpw 133 Oct 1 03:58 .qmail-default -rw-r----- 1 vpopmail vchkpw 107 Mar 26 2003 .qmail-vpopmail
before receiving this bounce, the last message my MUA has received from the vpopmail list was 2003/10/18 4:18AM EST from Sigmund Gudvangen titled "Re: [vchkpw] Multi domain bounce message handling"
Ah it seems i am not the only one with this problem. It seems that more people are seeing this then.
I also got the same message, and as far as i can see its in no way looping, no matter how i look at it.
So basically, its on their side, unless something is looping on my side, of which i know nothing.
