I'm trying to run email2trac with postfix. It kindof works, but just kindof.

When I test it with

mail tracproj < msg.txt

a new ticket is created, but it is not formated at all. The whole email, including headers and mime definition is part of the description of the new ticket. and there are no attachement. The body looks

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit


When I try to create a ticket with

email2trac --project=tracproj < msg.txt 

the email is created and formated just fine.

I run it with mta_user=nobody and trac_user=root (I know, it is not the best way to run it with root...)

Any idea what I missed or what I could have done wrong?

Thanks Florian
