Subject: blew out my router, can't get my wildcards working again

Hi Folks,

Had a client get a corrupt file (I guess) which jammed his mailbox up and while futzing tryng to sort things out the server hung. Then while setting up another backup server I inadvertantly overwrote my router tables. I got going again on a backup but cannot seem to get my wildcarded addresses going and I can't figure out why.

Here's what I have at the top of my router

<*> = _email

and here is the log.

11:58:44 5 ROUTER Input: heth_1(
11:58:44 5 ROUTER Parser: -> heth_1(
11:58:44 5 ROUTER Input: heth_1()
11:58:44 5 ROUTER Parser: heth_1 -> heth_1()
11:58:44 5 ROUTER Input: clseo_email(
11:58:44 5 ROUTER Parser: -> clseo_email(
11:58:44 5 ROUTER Input: clseo_email()
11:58:44 5 ROUTER Parser: clseo_email -> clseo_email()
11:58:44 1 SMTP-601( SPAM? Recipient '<>' rejected: user unknown

I can't find my SIMS docs but I'm 99.9% sure I have it right.

I also tried

* = _email

and each time the router still resolves to


for which there is no mailbox.

Any help is appreciated.
