Can't delete forwarder?

    I was trying to get PROCMAIL up and running when I found an FAQ that said to put the following in a .forward file:

    "|IFS=' ' && exec /usr/bin/procmail || exit 75 #doni49"

    I wasn't able to find such a file so I tried creating one in my home folder. Still didn't get any results.

    So I figured that I was supposed to pipe an address to that command line. I went in to CP's "forwarders" page and added that as the destination for a forwarder.

    I've since gotten PM working (not using this) but I can't delete this forwarder.

    All that happens is that I get a message that will no longer be forwarded to "IFS . The quote and the trailing space are there on the message.

    But when I view the forwarders page, it's still there. I suspect that either having the spaces or the pipe symbol in the URL is causing this.

    Are forwarders stored in a text file somewhere that I can access/edit via File Manager?

    NO, they are stored in /etc/valiases/ YOu will need to have yor webhost manually remove it. We fixed a lot of problems with adding/removing forwarders in EDGE that will make their way into the other builds.

    It may be one of several characters in your forwarder that are preventing its removal.
