[mrtg] threshold script not executed

I tried to monitor the ISDN interface on one of our routers, if the
interface goes up, a mail should be sent, but I don't receive any mails.
For troubleshooting I reduced the script to a minimum and tried several
values as ThreshMinI. I did some testing with ThreshMaxO but also no
effect. The script itself works when I start it (> perl threshprog.pl). The
value of the oid should be the right one, I graph it, and the returned
value is 5.
Any suggestions, or a hint, what I can use instead of a perl script first
for troubleshooting as ThreshProgI ("echo or something like that)?
Thanks in advance for any help,
Werner Beck
