Package: debbugs
Version: N/A; reported 2003-01-26
Severity: important

The instructions for setting up debbugs with Exim using a 
virtual host are broken. I followed the Exim instructions for 
setting it up with debbugs on a system that Exim will handle 
more than one kind of mail for, if the setup worked (incoming 
mail for users, outgoing mail from users, and debbugs).

I followed the instructions and placed this at the top of 
directives, as directed: 
  driver = aliasfile
  domains = bugs.surgo.net
  file = /usr/lib/debbugs/receive
  user = debbugs
  group = debbugs
  current_directory = /var/lib/debbugs/spool
  home_directory = /var/lib/debbugs/spool

The user and group debbugs was one I set up with login and password 
disabled and the shell set to /bin/false. bugs.surgo.net would be 
the domain I would receive the bug reports from, and was added to 

Anyway, the error I received was the following, when I tried to send 
a test mail from admin@surgo.net to morgon@surgo.net on the machine 
next to the mail server on the network (which works normally, without 
the debbugs configuration in exim.conf). Using Kmail, this is the 
A search type option is required

Unfortunately, I am no expert in Exim (yet ;) and I do not know 
how to fix the instructions provided in the documentation.

Just experimental, actually (which is why it won't reach testing until
2.4.1 or whatever is released with a few more fixes); but yes, thanks
for confirming the fix.
