I got hit this morning with an issue where the MailWatch logging script
failed and MailScanner ground to a halt. Is there a way I can make
MailScanner ignore a failure to load a CustomFunction and continue on?
The error in the logs was,
Jun 22 10:42:19 avhost1 MailScanner: Could not use Custom
Function code MailScanner::CustomConfig::InitMailWatchLogging, it could
not be "eval"ed. Make sure the module is correct with perl -wc
Not done troubleshooting yet, the system has been running 18 days so I
know that MS has restarted, no changes have been made in that time
either. I've confirmed that DBI is working with a short per script, so I
don't believe that is the issue.
If MailScanner would have just stopped loading MailWatch.pm and
continued as normal (Always Looked Up Last = no) I would be in a better
place right now.
I'll take a look at it, but I'm a Perl >= Bash guy, no real experience
with Perl in the application area. I could use a leg up.
PS. Julian, my feature request for MS would be that it passes over third
party functions that fail to load ;^)
Three years now I've asked Google why they don't have a
logo change for Memorial Day. Why do they choose to do logos
for other non-international holidays, but nothing for
Maybe they forgot who made that choice possible.
