Major Bug!!

Dear Wietse,

There is a bug in Postfix that should looked at immediately.

FRom

<a href="http://groups.google.com/group/alt.comp.mail.postfix/browse_thread/thread/fa83dc31cec1194e#" title="http://groups.google.com/group/alt.comp.mail.postfix/browse_thread/thread/fa83dc31cec1194e#">http://groups.google.com/group/alt.comp.mail.postfix/browse_thread/threa...</a>

In case you think I am being pompous, I am not.

Found the problem, a filter was set to 120.0.0.1 instead of 127.0.0.1 .

I thought it was fixed.

Even after 'fixing' this problem, postfix still insisted the filter
was at 120.0.0.1 .

All right I do not mind the smtp_fallback_relay , but this indicates a bug
somewhere in postfix.

Even if told to change directions, it was still looking for the wrong server?

I tried both 2.7.0 and 2.8 experimental!

The debugging sectin help and stil we have a back up of e-mail.

PLEASE fix!

The Doctor:

See the "postsuper -r" option:

<a href="http://www.postfix.org/postsuper.1.html" title="http://www.postfix.org/postsuper.1.html">http://www.postfix.org/postsuper.1.html</a>

This is also referenced from:

<a href="http://www.postfix.org/FILTER_README.html#advanced_turnoff" title="http://www.postfix.org/FILTER_README.html#advanced_turnoff">http://www.postfix.org/FILTER_README.html#advanced_turnoff</a>

Which describes what to do when you change your mind about the
current content_filter setting.

Dear "Doctor", if you don't want to be rediculed and summarily dismissed,
ask humbly for clarification of how things are expected to work and
whether what you are experiencing is expected behaviour before making
wild accusations and implying that someone owes you "immediate" support
for free software.

I am afraid only others can refute this claim, you are not in a position
to do so.

The content filter of already accepted messages is a queue-file property.
As documented, files already in the queue need to be reprocesed with
new filter settings:

<a href="http://www.postfix.org/FILTER_README.html#advanced_turnoff" title="http://www.postfix.org/FILTER_README.html#advanced_turnoff">http://www.postfix.org/FILTER_README.html#advanced_turnoff</a>

In your case to correct rather than disable the filter, but the idea is
the same.

This is the last time you get any help with that tone. Future violations
will lead to the termination of your list subscription.

Have you by chance looked at: man postsuper and reference the -r parameter?
