  1. Ah, this is discussed in several forums lately. Do a web search for "perl sa-learn Argument isn't numeric in numeric". It's some warning due to perl / spamassassin versions, I guess.
  2. My old cgi script for spam assassin training has recently started reporting errors - the lines starting with "Argument" here in the output: Learning SPAM: Argument "0.70_01" isn't numeric in numeric ge (>=) at /usr/local/share/perl5/Mail/SpamAssassin/Plugin/AskDNS.pm line 214. Argument "0.70_01" isn't numeric in numeric lt (<) at /usr/local/share/perl5/Mail/SpamAssassin/Dns.pm line 521. ..........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

  3. Thanks, TCH-Jesse, and everyone else! I now see why I never noticed this before. I recently upgraded from Thunderbird 1.0 to 2.0. The new version forwards an attachment like this: Content-Type: message/rfc822; name="Re: subject line.eml" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Content-Disposition: inline; filename="subject line.eml" whereas the old version would forward mail as an attachment like this: Content-Type: message/rfc822; name="subject line" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Content-Disposition: inline; filename="subject line"
  4. I've suddenly noticed that if I send an email with a .eml attachment (which is how Thunderbird forwards messages), TCH is apparently rejecting that incoming email. I believe this is new behavior. It even occurs sending to my login on server78. Why is this happening? Here's an example where I obfuscated my email address and some other things. I send email out (SMTP) via RoadRunner (therefore you see rr.com) but only emails which end up on a TCH server get rejected. Return-path: <> Envelope-to: MyEmailAddress Delivery-date: Fri, 07 Sep 2007 08:22:18 -0400 Received: from mailnull by server78.tchmachines.com with local (Exim 4.66) id 1ITcqo-0002P2-Iy for MyEmailAddress; Fri, 07 Sep 2007 08:22:18 -0400 X-Failed-Recipients: MyEmailAddress Auto-Submitted: auto-replied From: Mail Delivery System <Mailer-Daemon@server78.tchmachines.com> To: MyEmailAddress Subject: Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender Message-Id: <E1ITcqo-0002P2-Iy@server78.tchmachines.com> Date: Fri, 07 Sep 2007 08:22:18 -0400 This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

  5. Thanks Andy, but SpamAssassin doesn't like --maildir Unknown option: maildir Is there a later version of SpamAssassin I should be picking up? I'm getting SpamAssassin version 3.2.1
  6. The script I ended up with was #!/usr/bin/perl my $salearn = "/usr/bin/sa-learn"; $|; print "Content-type: text/plain\n\n"; print "Learning SPAM:\n"; print `$salearn -p /home/mylogin/.spamassassin/user_prefs --mbox --spam --showdots /home/mylogin/mail/myspam 2>&1`; print "\n\n"; print "Learning HAM:\n"; print `$salearn -p /home/mylogin/.spamassassin/user_prefs --mbox --ham --showdots /home/mylogin/mail/myham 2>&1`; print "\n\n"; exit; But with the mail changes from a couple weeks ago, should /home/mylogin/mail/myspam be changed to something like /home/mylogin/mail/.myspam/cur (or the applicable per-user box) now? Nothing seems to work - tells me zero messages. Is there hope of it working with the one-file-per-message format in the 'cur' directory?
  7. Good job in spotting that site. I found it also by a search. However, 'undergoing maintenance' blurb is visible on every page of http://www.aboutus.org and is not about dnscentral.com. And I am the one that posted the blurb about dnscentral.com being down since yesterday. I am just fishing for a place where people might post knowledgeable status or at least discuss it in comp.mail.misc. I was just hoping someone in the TCH family might be similarly affected like me or have advice.
  8. dnscentral.com has been down for perhaps 24 hours now. Anyone know their status? I have a "forwarding account" with them for my email which then goes to an account with TCH. So no email to my regular email address is getting through. The numbers on their Google-cached web page say voice mailbox is full. Technical contact for whois has two phone numbers both of which say out of service. I started a thread in comp.mail.misc about this since I didn't know where else to get status.
  9. Thanks for the advice. I didn't realize that the default mailing address isn't really needed for anything like for administrative stuff. As long as you have an email account for "Please update your contact information here.", I guess that's all TCH needs.
  10. In cPanel you can Change Quota on email accounts but not the Main Account. What is the quota on the main account - whatever your disk quota will allow? And is it a good idea to not use this address for your personal email, reserving the main account for important things related to the domain?
  11. No, I wasn't looking for more information. Maybe I am wrong for my whole premise, but when I have a problem, I might look in the forums. I thought others might do that too. That's why I started this thread. I was happy enough with my previous message being the last in the thread. A reader would gather that it's a problem that sometimes happens to some people and you need to open a ticket when it occurs.
  12. I received the exact same error again on January 15. I didn't have time to enter a ticket until this morning. It got fixed very quickly. I then asked what caused the problem. Got answer of "There was a configuration issue with Front Page installation. We have fixed it. Please feel free to contact us, if you experience any such issues in future."
  13. I don't have a line like that in my .htaccess but things work anyway.
  14. Sorry I didn't open up a ticket right away. But tonight I tried it from the same computer and it worked. So someone fixed something!
  15. FrontPage was working fine for awhile. Now when publishing, the progress meter shows a couple files being uploaded but the progress meter goes back to zero and it seemingly does another couple files, and repeats another time maybe, then I get an error whose Details shows: 406 Not Acceptable Not Acceptable An appropriate representation of the requested resource /_vti_bin/_vti_aut/author.exe could not be found on this server. Apache/1.3.33 Server at www.<domain> Port 80 I had FrontPage problems in the past that were fixed by me uninstalling and reinstalling the FrontPage extensions. That didn't help this time.

    Can't Publish

    Yep, uninstall and reinstall worked. Thanks! I wonder what caused this.

    Can't Publish

    I've been able to publish from FrontPage 2000 for many months and it suddenly doesn't work. I publish to http://<domain> like always and before being challenged for my password, get this popup: The server could not complete your request. Contact your Internet service provider or web server administrator to make sure that the server has the FrontPage Server Extensions installed. For more specific information, click Details (I click Details...) 500 Internal Server Error Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@<domain> and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. Apache/1.3.33 Server at www.<domain> Port 80 cpanel says the extensions are installed and I reinstalled them with the same resuls.
  18. I see the two ways on cpanel to add cron jobs. But is there a way to obtain the whole crontab file, update it, and resubmit it? Or other way to add a bunch of cron entries? My immediate need is for emailing birthday reminders. Other suggestions of how to send such reminders to a mailing list without advertisements are welcome.
  19. The answer is that when you are billed, the only way to know which site is involved is by creating a help desk ticket (unless of course it's obvious from your own records). Lianna helped me a great deal, including on my related forum posting about changing credit card info in advance of a yearly (in my case) bill. Thank you. Where I was coming from is that ownership of this domain was transfered. There is no way for customers to do this on their own. That is OK, but it should be made obvious. The only contact info for this domain I could find was in its cpanel. But you also have to worry about the contact which the billing has for the domain, and TCH seems to have yet a third contact for some purpose.
  20. I think we agree that once I get my yearly bill, I can change my credit card. Prior to that, or even to see when my year is up, I have to create a help desk ticket. Thank you.
  21. I got my yearly recurring billing notice on January 22, due date of January 27. More notice would be appreciated. Anyway, nothing in that email or the web pages to pay tell me which site it is. How can I find that out?
  22. How do I find when my site's yearly bill recurs, and change the credit card in advance of the emailed bill?
  23. How about if you just choose a completely random member in good standing? At least that way I'd have a chance (as opposed to any technical contest). Or the least imaginative idea for the contest (hoping that this idea isn't very imaginative).
