Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 49686
New package breaks bouncing messages.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:01 EDT
Description of Problem:
The new elm package elm-2.5.5-0.62 breaks the bouncing of messages via the
By attempting to bounce a message.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open elm.
2. Bounce a message to a valid email address ( b , enter address , y )
3. Note brief error before screen rewrites incorrectly.
Screen rewrites incorrectly, over writing error message.
Error message is:
Resending mail...sh: syntax error near unexpected token `(n'
sh: -c: line 1: `(/usr/sbin/sendmail -oi -oem -om "email@example.com"
);/bin/rm -f (null))&'
firstname.lastname@example.org is a valid email address.
The message is not bounced.
The email should be bounced, and the screen redraw correctly.
To get the actuall error message, I had to pipe the output to a file, so it
wouldn't be written over. I did:
elm > elmtrace 2>&1
Then hit b to bounce, entered the address, y to bounce, q to quit, n to not
move to received.
System is RedHat 6.2, new elm package, sendmail-8.9.3-20.
Has been reproduced on another 6.2 box running the same packages.
Worked before the update.
Should be fixed in elm-2.5.5-5
Can this fixed release be made available as updates for supported Red Hat Linux
versions (6.2, 7.1 at least)?
Given that the issued update packages are broken, the right thing to do would be
to reissue a corrected update, IMHO.
