I am trying to get the questionnaire set up and working and am running into mail problems.  I think I've narrowed it down to an "ALLOW_MAIL_TO" problem.

In my answer file, I have the following command:

mail_answers_to2('', "$courseName Course Evaluation");

In my debugging attempts, I added the following line:


Finally, I should note that in my file, I have the line:

$PG_environment{'ALLOW_MAIL_TO'} = '';

The problem is that when I run the script (by submitting the answer), I get the following error:

There has been an error in creating this problem.
Please notify your instructor.

Mail is not permitted to address
Permitted addresses are specified in the file.

Seems bizarre to me.  Somehow it is either not reading the file or else ignoring it.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

One more thing:

My file line is actually:

$PG_environment{'ALLOW_MAIL_TO'} = [''];

In case anyone else runs into this problem, this was due to the install_problem_grader() bug in the original WWK 1.9 distribution:$1944
