Looks like I have been able to get around the eval problem that I
was having on my Linux box.
When a user now send a "subscribe <list>" command to majordomo
on my box, which is, email@example.com
several amazing things happen.
Firstly the user gets a reply from
and not my box.
It also does not find the list. I have attached a copy of my majordomo.cf
and the message that the user gets.
I have been really working hard to get this going and would appreciatte
any help. TIA.
----------------------- my majordomo.cf file
$whereami = "vulcan.gep.ge.com";
$whoami = "Majordomo@$whereami";
$whoami_owner = "Owner-Majordomo@$whereami";
$listdir = "/var/spool/majordomo/lists";
$digest_work_dir = '/var/spool/majordomo/digest';
$log = "$homedir/Log";
$mailer = "/usr/lib/sendmail -f$sender";
$filedir = "/var/spool/majordomo/archive";
$filedir_suffix = "";
$index_command = "/bin/ls -lRL";
$return_subject = 1;
$majordomo_request = 0;
