Errors: Majordomo & MHonarc

2000-02-21 09:46:33
Hello fellow MHonarc users,
I have scanned the archives of this list and I appreciate the people
here who have helped others with similar problems but I just can't seem
to get Mhonarc to work with majordomo correctly.

I have a linux box with the latest version of sendmail (8.9.3) and the
latest release of majordomo (1.9.4). I have tried many methods to get a
post sent to a majordomo list to automatically add itself to the html
archive which works great as a shell command by the way :)

Situation #1
I edit the /etc/aliases file as decibed in the FAQ and as Chris
described (both menthods) and get the same error. I realize this is a
senmail problem and i see no easy way to fix this - or any way for that
matter. Here is the error I get repeatedly:

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|/usr/bin/mhonarc -add -quiet -outdir
    (expanded from: list-mhonarc)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
Message delivered to mailing list list-outgoing

ERROR: "/home/httpd/virtuals/directory/list/2000" does not exist
554 "|/usr/bin/mhonarc -add -quiet -outdir
/home/httpd/virtuals/directory/list/2000"... unknown mailer error 2

I get the same error if I put "list-mhonarc into the list's outgoing
alias or the main one with the -resend line list-mhonarc

The wierd thing is this in the header of the message:
X-Actual-Recipient: RFC822; |/usr/bin/mhonarc -add -quiet -outdir

Again I think sendmail is the problem. Any suggestions?


Situation #2
I used the filter .forward and .elm/filter_rules to try it that way. I
get this error:
550 /home/user/.forward: line 1: |/usr/local/bin/filter... Address
<user(_at_)machine(_dot_)name(_dot_)here> is unsafe for mailing to programs

I added the line that allowed sendmail to use any shell to /etc/shells
and it did not help.

I can, of course, live with doing this manually but I would love to
automate the process. I pray that out of all the people here someone has
been in the same situation and can over some wonderful step by step
