hello, I have an email address that is processed by a script. the problem is that the script does not seem to run when I send an email. I checked the path in my settings and 'chmod +x' on the script file to no avail. is there something else that I am missing?

thanks konstantin

Did you run 'chmod +x path' or 'chmod u+x path'? The latter is the correct command.

I ran 'chmod +x path'. but the permissions set by 'chmod u+x path' are a subset of these set by the '+x' command, so it should not matter...

What mail server are you on? What happens if you run your script from the command line?

the script works from the command line. I am on mail.webfaction.com, and my machine's name is web134.

I've looked up your account, and your mailbox server is mail3. Mail2script does not seem to be working on the older mail servers, and we can migrate you to a newer one to resolve the problem. Please open a support ticket if you would like to do this.
