Description Charles Seraphine 2002-02-25 19:57:30 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.7) Gecko/20011226

Description of problem:
If "rotate 0" and "mail foo@bar" are both specified, logrotate simply deletes
the logfile without mailing it anywhere.   The expected behavior is for it to
mail the file out, but keep no archives (.1, .2, etc).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set rotate to 0 and the mail directive in a logrotate config file
2.Run logrotate
3.The file is rotated into the bitbucket, but not mailed off


Actual Results:  The file is not received at the mail destination.  It is simply

Expected Results:  The file should indeed have been deleted, but only after
being mailed out to the specified server

Additional info:

The mail feature of logrotate is an important one, and lets the sysadmin do many
nifty log archival things.  This bug is serious because it forces at least an
extra days worth of logs to remain on the box before they can be sent off to a
collection server.

I think this should be fixed in CVS...
