0001348: MTA problem solved

I tried configuring the inbound mail, and I want to report a couple of issues I had.

First of all, I think the documentation should mention that you need to add something like #!/usr/bin/php to scripts such as output.php or inboundmail.php if you want them to work (for instance from the scheduler). To me, that was evident, but it might not be evident to others.

I first tried the "simple" solution: POP/IMAP, but I didn't manage to get it working. I don't think it's a bug, it's probably a configuration error on my side. I manually triggered auto.php. First I had the error because php_imap was missing, but after installing the module, no error was thrown, but no mail was fetched from my support INBOX either.

I didn't pursue this because I was more interested in the "push" solution than in the "pull" solution. At first, I received errors saying:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function return_bytes() in /var/www/public_html/lib/ on line 131

I looked in the code, and I found that the method return_bytes() is defined in
This file is included before in inboundemail.php, but it should be included in an earlier stage.
Following the instructions for MTA and you'll get the Fatal Error: "Call to undefined function return_bytes()."
You can solve this problem like this:

require_once ('core.php');
# add this line here:
require_once (APPLICATION_LIBPATH . '');
# add the above line.
require_once (APPLICATION_LIBPATH . '');
require (APPLICATION_LIBPATH . 'fetchSitMail.class.php');

if (realpath(__FILE__) == realpath($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']))
    include (APPLICATION_LIBPATH . '');
# change the line below so that isn't included twice
    require_once (APPLICATION_LIBPATH . '');
# change the line above (or remove it)
    require_once (APPLICATION_LIBPATH . '');
No tags attached.
