I noticed an email in the quarantine today that was not spam.  I clicked the deliver button and it was delivered to my email shortly after.

I then noticed this in the activity log:

I am using ODBC to connect to mysql on linux, but the strange part is
I am not using the username root to connect the the mysql server as the error message would lead you to believe.

What is you connection string within SpamFilter (are you using a UDL file or using an actual connection string)? Did you specify a username/password in the MySQL ODBC DSN on the SpamFilter server? If using a UDL file, usually you would leave the username/password there blank, while you'd enter them in the ODBC DSN.

I'm using an ODBC datasource, with a connection string.

Provider=MSDASQL.1;Persist Security Info=False;Data Source=spamfilter

The username & password are specified in the ODBC datasource.  I'm using the name admin to connect to the database in the ODBC datasource, not root as is being shown in the error.

I've got two servers running SFE 3.5.622 and I just confirmed that both servers are doing it when I release and item from quarantine.  Neither of the machines connect using the root username.

I just tried to add (manually) an item to the whitelist for a domain, and the activity log shows the following error in response to my attempt:

I am using the mySQL ODBC driver version  Very strange, since it is doing some aspects of operation OK with that ODBC datasource and others are no good.

I have found the source of the problem.  It is a mySQL issue, that has come about as the result of:

- I installed the spamfilter database on Server A
- I did a mysqldump of the database
- I restored it on Server B

Server A was using root as the user, so some of the views/triggers are owned by root.

When moved to Server B, an issue has been created because there is no root account.

I have found several documented cases.

So it is not a spamfilter issue at all.

I'm glad you let us know . We were looking to see if the fact that the "@" sign in the autowhitelist entry was somehow "messing up" the query used to insert the record into MySQL. But no matter what we did everythink looked fine...
