autoresponder using .qmail-default

    We provide auto-responder service and for this we execute a script when any new mail arrives. We have Plesk 7.5 Reloaded server.
    This worked great before .... we are calling a autoresponder script (perl script) when any new mail arrives using the following code in .qmail-default file:
    |/usr/bin/perl /home/httpd/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/subscribe.pl

    This had correct permissions and was working perfectly ... not sure what happened, i just restarted qmail using the following command /etc/rc.d/init.d/qmail restart .......... and now it stopped working.
    When i send a mail to the server, it bounces back with error as
    Sorry, no mailbox here by that name. (#5.1.1)

    Obviously there is no mailbox with that name, but we dont' want to send the mail to any mailbox, we just want to pipe it to a perl script.

    Can anybody give any idea.

    Best Regards
