Hey Richard

I'm using your code but md_syslog doesn't seem to output anything to my logfiles.

Im using rsyslog and my logs should be in /var/log/messages.
But I see nothing from the md_syslog coming up.

Kind regards

I use postfix.

The first argument to filter_recipient() is the recipient. The same value is also put into the first element of @Recipients.

Add these three lines, exactly, to filter_recipient():

sub filter_recipient()
    my $a = $_[0];
    my $b = $Recipients[0];
    md_syslog('info', "a = $a ; b = $b"); }

See what that outputs. My output looks like this:
a = <rlaager at wiktel.com> ; b = <rlaager at wiktel.com>

If you get something like that, then whatever code you wrote to look at @Recipients is wrong. Start with the working code and you should be able to figure it out.

If that exact code outputs:
a = ; b =
then the recipient value really is the empty string, and I have no idea why.
