Antiblank, if no bounced emails are found, the stats will be blank. That's normal. If you're asking why there are no bounced emails, you need to check the diagnostics and error messages, and provide some details.

Well as I stated I intentionally created a bad email address for a test user. Then triggered some emails to be sent to it. The email isn't found so a the message ends back up in my return-path mailbox. Vbouncer connects, attempts the collection, processes the one email it found. But says no bounced emails. Then deletes the email from the box.

Forgive me if I'm wrong but wouldn't this constitue as an email that vBouncer should be triggered off of.

As for my diagnostics:

vBouncer sender email
Test Result
Valid vBouncer email account (subscriber_notify@********.com) Passed
vBouncer email account (subscriber_notify@********.com) differs from webmaster account Passed

vBouncer Spool File Diagnostics (ignore if using IMAP/POP)
Test Result
vBouncer email spool file () exists Failed
vBouncer email spool file () is writable Failed
vBouncer email spool file () is readable Failed

vBouncer pattern config file diagnostics
Test Result
vbouncer.inc file exists Passed
vbouncer.inc file is readable Passed

vBouncer IMAP/POP Diagnostics (ignore if not using IMAP/POP)
Test Result
Your PHP installation supports IMAP/POP Passed
Your IMAP/POP settings can connect Passed

As for my Cron Logs for example:

vBouncer Collect 04:02, 27th Jul 2006 Status:
Processed 2 emails No bounced emails found.

I am using IMAP and the connection, reading and deleting of the emails is functioning. There is absoulty no reason any email should be entering this box outside of the return-path function added to the emails since I installed vBouncer.

Anything else you need to see? Thanks.

Just to inform you that this hack is producing invalid Mail headers.

$headers = preg_replace('/Return-Path.*/', 'Return-Path: ' . $vbulletin->options['vbouncer_spool_account'], $headers, 1);

That will match up to the \r and replace it, the end result is that the header has \n instead of \r\n.

If you could fix this it would be awesome, if you can't or aren't around any more i'll speak to Marco about manually updating your hack for you.

This affects Qmail installs and potentially the SMTP mail sender.

Quick Fix, i think but haven't tested is adding $

$headers = preg_replace('/Return-Path.*$/', 'Return-Path: ' . $vbulletin->options['vbouncer_spool_account'], $headers, 1);

Perhaps its interesting for the FAQ ...

Wow thanks for this bit of info. Using an externail mailserver - this info saved me after many failed attempts :)

Is it fit for vb 3.6.1? Cos I used it on 3.5.4 and it was very good :)

Attached is a modified installer that will work on 3.6 (only tested install).

Will post later if vBouncer itself works on vB3.6 Beta1

PS Maybe this can easily turned into a product, so there will not be this kind of problems with future releases.

Edit: Seems to work on 3.6 Beta 1

any update word on this ?

I hope so :(

recently cpanel made some changes to its mail data store, where instead of using single inbox file. it uses maildir format, which has cur, new, and tmp folder. In this case, does it work?

Thanks to the poster of this php to make vbouncer work under vb 3.6.1.

I have collected his script with the original script, for ease of use to the unexspiriense users of vb. I'll hope you all understand my motive.

I with this I'll say it is working with Vbulletin 3.6.1 updated
