I am using account level filtering so that any email with to field containing gets piped to a program. The program used is at |/home/accountname/public_html/email/pipe.php. This is what is used in pipe to a program for email forwarding which works fine. However, it returns a delivery status notification failure and the file does not get run.

Hello zachgk,

The error message received when trying to send the mail contained the following:

"Child process of virtual_address_pipe transport returned 127 (could mean unable to exec or command does not exist) from command: /home/zachki5/public_html/email/pipe.php"

This usually means that the permissions for the file are incorrect. I changed the pipe.php permissions to 755 and the error no longer appears.

I ran several tests and was able to see the data collected in the database, so I believe it to be working now.

Best Regards,
Scott M
