Description Alan Hourihane 2003-11-17 14:54:12 UTC
I'm using postfix with fetchmail and it's been working fine on Debian, until 
the switch to Gentoo. So, I'm using the 'antispam' option in fetchmail which is 
meant to discard a message with that return code, but it doesn't and continues 
to forward the mail to the defined 'postmaster'.

This is the output

fetchmail: SMTP> RCPT TO:<>
fetchmail: SMTP< 554 <>: User unknown in local 
recipient table
fetchmail: SMTP listener doesn't really like recipient address 
fetchmail: SMTP> RCPT TO:<alanh@localhost>
fetchmail: SMTP< 250 Ok
fetchmail: no address matches; forwarding to alanh.
fetchmail: SMTP> DATA
fetchmail: SMTP< 354 End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF>
fetchmail: SMTP>. (EOM)
fetchmail: SMTP< 250 Ok: queued as A662F1DF8E6
fetchmail: POP3> DELE 1
fetchmail: POP3< +OK 
fetchmail: POP3> QUIT

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use antispam option in fetchmail configuration and it won't discard

Is this still an issue in fetchmail 6.2.5 ?
Comment 3 Alan Hourihane 2004-11-10 08:10:15 UTC
Unfortunately I can't test any longer. I switched to amavis to do the filtering for me.

I guess you can close this now as I can no longer test.

Closing then.
