Messages to dlists keep coming back

Messages to dlists keep coming back

Post by Gary Frit » Tue, 13 Jan 2004 13:43:02


I run a couple of small mailing lists using dist lists in Pegasus. I
have them send messages to my address with an "+IDENTIFIER" after my
name. Pegasus rules detect the "+IDENTIFIER" and forward the message
to a dlist. It's clumsy and doesn't always work right, but it does the
job.

Lately I've been having problems with a few messages to these dlists
getting sent again and again. It appears that these messages get re-
queued every time I restart Pegasus. Whether I delete them before
sending, or forget and send them out to the list (again), they'll be
back the next time I start Pegasus.

I don't know why these two messages get treated differently; there have
been dozens of messages to these lists in the same timeframe and none
of the rest of the messages repeat like this.

Any guesses how I can track down and kill off these undead messages?
Drive a wooden stake into their hearts, or...??

Thanks,
Gary

Wait, I think I figured it out. I left these messages in my Inbox for
future processing. No doubt the rules were being applied every time
the inbox got opened. I was thinking the rules only got applied to NEW
messages, but I guess if they aren't marked "read" then they're
considered NEW -- again and again and again ...
