in thread email parsing

Well, I am on a Cpanel Machine, I'm using the forward an email feature to PIPE it to the script. It works for my HelpDesk Application.

What does "I'm using the forward an email feature" mean? Do you mean a *nix .forward file? If not, a quick explanation of what the "forward an email feature" is and what it actually does would be, er, helpful don't you think?

    I'm sorry. What I mean is that Cpanel is a web interface that gives just about complete control over the domain.

    In the email manager, there is a forward feature, which bascially just allows you to enter a forwarding address for a chosen email address.

    You can tell the form what email you want to forward from your domain name, and enter a forwarding address. You can also choose to pipe it to a script, by entering the pipe and path: |/path/to/ instead of an email address.

    Either way, Cpanel, the software that manages the server, puts that entry into your /etc/valiases/domain file.
    Such as this:
    It adds a line such as this: |/home/path/to/
    Whatever you enter into the form in your control panel(cpanel).

      You could try piping an email to your script from the command line manually. If it works you can safely assume that your script is not the cause of the problem.

      cat some_email_file | /path-to/

      If that does work then you'll probably have to find out exactly what that Cpanel thingamajig is doing.
