Subject: [Exim] freeze_tell_mailmaster not working?
Hrm.. I've setup a system filter to trap certain messages and freeze
them, which I've tested and is working. I want to inspect them and
have the option to kill them or let them go..

Now, I want to be notified when it does so. No problem, I thought,
freeze_tell_mailmaster is the trick for me. So I get it set, and set
the errors_to address to my address, send a HUP to the daemon, and then
go on to try it out - and ACK.. It doesnt work.. No mention made in the
logs about freeze_tell_mailmaster, or of any messages being sent.. Am I
doing something wrong here or is exim?
