I got mail loop when sending non-remailer message
to remailer.

I had following settings:
SMTPRELAY localhost
MAILBOX disastry@saiknes.lv
AUTOREPLY n

I solved this by changing
"MAILBOX disastry@disastry.dhs.org"
to "MAILBOX mbox"

also "AUTOREPLY y" helps

    Should we endure that "MAILBOX" only take a file name,
    rather than an address?

    Is disastry@saiknes.lv the address of your remailer or not?

  • this should add x-loop to some outgoing mail. -- NOT tested

    x-loop header never gets written.

    This patch adds it to some mail.
    I wonder whether each outgoing mail should have it.

    fixed in CVS
    mailing is not done in a very clean way :/
