postfix and uucp

Hi,

i have a problem configuring postfix using uucp as a special transport. if i add the transport:
my.domain uucp:MyDomain

then postfix does not use the uucp system "MyDomain" but tries to use "mydomain" with does not exists. If i add a system "mydomain" then it will be added to the uucp queue, but i have no access to the receiving uucp site, so i have to use "MyDomain". How can i configure postfix to be case sensitive when using the uucp-transport?

Re: postfix and uucp

Hi

Have you tried quotes ?

my.domain uucp:'MyDomain'

Why should I bother ? The problem will be gone with the next release ...

Re: postfix and uucp

Yes, i have tried it. postfix takes to whole string as uucp-system. If i quote the system, the quotes are part of the system name.

I also modified the pipe options for the uucp transport definition in the master.cf.
i removed for testing the h,q and u options, which changes the character case to lowercase for nexthop and email address. but the uucp system is always converted to lowercase.
