Hi folks,if someone could lend me a hand here, I would be grateful.
I'm trying to use demime.pl with the following recommended hook in

foo: "|/home/mailman/mail/demime.pl - |/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post foo"

but i get back the following error:

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|/home/mailman/mail/demime.pl - |/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post shaka"
    (expanded from: <foo at bar.org>)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
sh: cannot use | in command
554 "|/home/mailman/mail/demime.pl - |/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post
shaka"... Service unavailable

So I'm thinking it's the pipe into a pipe that is creating the problem.
I'm running smrsh and am not sure if the limitation is being imposed there
or not. I do have the approp sym links for both the mailman wrapper and
demime.pl in sm.bin. Has anyone seen this and can recommend a viable
