First, I'd like to thank you for having this list available. I'm hoping
that this is the correct place to post my questions, because I couldn't
tell if this was just for folks that run lists, or for folks that actually
I did read the FAQ, and the problem that I have does not seem to be
First, let me give you the "what were doing" part, then I'll get to the
We're running majordomo here on a gateway Linux machine that we use to get
our internal network connected to the Internet via ISDN. The gateway
machine is running IPMASQUERADE, and diald.
This machine has no IP address on the net, it just connects via
bellsouthnet, and is assigned and IP address each time it logs on. For this
reason, we have the mailinglist mail and the mail to majordomo go to a
server across town, and we pick it up every 30 minutes using FETCHMAIL.
FETCHMAIL then sends it to the mailinglist, and it is distributed correctly
to each list member.
Now the problem... mail that is routed to the list via fetchmail shows up
to the list members with the headerlines blank. If we mail from inside the
network to the list it is fine, and if I change fetchmail to deliver to one
of the mailboxes on our network the headers are fine there.
I'm assuming that it is something that RESEND is doing, but the only clue
I have is that there is a blank line in the header information near the
begining (all of the header information is printed inside each message that
the members get) and I'm told that most readers take it as gospel that the
message text starts at that point...
Here is a copy of the header information, from the start of an average
