    cpanel auto-responders stopped working

    I checked /etc/valiases/domain and see all the proper .autorespond extensions/lines

    The auto-responders however are not working at all, no responses made well automatically

    I ran forced cpanel update and restart exim as well

    Any suggestions? DNS is fine.

    The mails were sent fine, no errors returned and nothing in mail queue.
    Just the auto responders stopped working.

    I got 2 clients both on 2 seperate cpanel servers (both using RELEASE) that submitted
    a ticket about this problem.

    You might want to check if the autoresponder file is present under /home/username/.autorespond/
    Also make sure that /usr/local/cpanel/bin/autorespond is working and has the correct permissions.

    The files within /home/username/.autorespond/* should have the same owner and chmod 644.
    If that is correct, try checking the logs(/var/log/exim_mainlog) and see what haapens when you send the mail. If the autoresponder is working, you should see something like the following:

    1Fhkdj-0004j8-TK => |/usr/local/cpanel/bin/autorespond user@domain /home/username/.autorespond (user@domain) <user@domain> R=virtual_aliases_nostar T=virtual_address_pipe S=1808 QT=4s DT=0s

    If its broken, you may see something like the following:
    1Fhkdj-0004j8-TK** |/usr/local/cpanel/bin/autorespond user@domain /home/username/.autorespond (user@domain) <user@domain> R=virtual_aliases_nostar T=virtual_address_pipe: delivery to pipe forbidden


    Also check if the pipe_transport option is enabled in the exim configuration. You can also try a force exim upgrade(after taking a backup of /etc/exim.conf).

    Thanks for your reply.

    Exim mainlog shows this error: (many of them)

    2006-05-24 06:39:39 H=(duitsreclame.nl) [xxx.207.56.229] F=<roarko@recipient.nl> temporarily rejected RCPT <subscribe@hosteddomain.com>: error in redirect data: colon expected after route list in "@hostedomain.com,|/usr/local/cpanel/bin/autorespond subscribe@hostedomain.com /home/patri3/.autorespond"


    So what exactly does that mean now?
