Mail::Audit help plz

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I've installed the Mail::Audit (ver 2.1) perl module
to my home directory as non-root user & I get a problem.

here's my .forward:

here's the forward_email:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w

  unshift @INC, '/home/rob/lib/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3'

$\ = "\n";
select(STDERR); $| = 1;
select(STDOUT); $| = 1;
use Mail::Audit;

my $mail    = Mail::Audit->new(emergency=>"/home/rob/emergency_mbox");
my $from    = $mail->from();
my $to      = $mail->to();
my $subject = $mail->subject();
chomp($from, $to, $subject);

open(LOG, ">> /home/rob/mynewmail.log");
     print LOG "from is $from";
     print LOG "to   is $to";
     print LOG "subj is $subject";


However, nothing is written to mynewmail.log. Plus the first line
of the dead.lettters is:
 From root@localhost  Wed Oct 26 16:06:27 2005
  <<and then we have the body of the mail here>>

In addition, this email is sent back to the user:

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

   pipe to |/home/rob/bin/forward_email
     generated by

The following text was generated during the delivery attempt:

------ pipe to |/home/rob/bin/forward_email

Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at
/home/rob/lib/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/Mail/ line 431.

------ This is a copy of the message, including all the headers. ------
    <<the headers + body of email is here>>

Has anyone seen this problem? What do you think I should do?
