Description Duncan Findlay 2005-08-21 21:03:09 UTC
My patch for bug 4546 involves having spamd respond with EX_UNAVAILABLE.
Unfortunately, spamc does not properly parse this error, and instead returns
EX_IOERR (I believe because it does not get the output it is looking for and
spamd closes the connection.)

spamc should parse the error, exit with the correct error message and error
code. Right now, no message is output.

 when TELLing

The code for check and tell is virtually identical.  I suspect this bug
report is too specific and it is a generic problem for spamc and not
limited to the tell call.

I've verified that spamc -x returns 74 instead of 69 when sent an EX_UNAVAILABLE
