[Mailman-Users] mailman loops because of & in an address
support at antenna.nl
Tue Apr 23 14:49:37 CEST 2002
We just experienced a loop: a message was sent many times because it
wasn't deleted in the /home/mailman/qfiles directory
The error mailed was:
/usr/bin/python -S /home/mailman/cron/qrunner
sh: c.lovell at xtra.co.nz: command not found
c... User unknown
It appeared that there was an address added to the list:
m&c.lovell at xtra.co.nz
The loop could only be stopped by removing the .msg and .db file in the
qfiles directory. I also removed this address from the subscribers.
Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening again?
We run mailman 2.0.6 on Redhat Linux and it seems on first sight an error
in the combination python/mailman.
Thanks for bothering,
Tsjebbe de Vries
