I've been trying to set up MHonArc and procmail to automatically archive
mailing-list messages I get, and well, I've got close-ish but have been
unable to get it working.
I seem to have got procmail working fully (the test cases in docs work
perfectly) but I can't quite seem to get the forwarded messages to call
Basically what I have is a system with MHonArc and procmail. Email comes
into my main email account, and if the mail has the "To" field as
"list(_at_)etc(_dot_)com" I want the system to add this message to the archive.
(I also would quite like to have a message in my inbox too)
I've tried some of the cases in the MHonArc FAQ, and either they are
quite what I want, or I can't seem to get them to work.
So, I have a number of problems:
(1) Do I need to explicity create the MHonArc archive first, or will the
first "mhonarc -add" do that for me?
(2) What exactly do I need to put in my .procmailrc and .procmail/rc.blah
Currently I have as a test case:
MHONARC='/usr/local/bin/mhonarc -add -quiet -umask 022 -idxfname index.html'
|/usr/local/bin/mhonarc -add -quiet -umask 022 -idxfname index.html -outdir
It's matching on subject so I can test it easier, and it's using explicit
paths to reduce the possibility of errors.
The last few lines of my procmail log go like this:
Illegal option -t
procmail: Couldn't determine implicit lockfile from "/usr/local/bin/mhonarc"

Well, I apologise for the long-winded nature of the email, but I thought
I'd improve the chance of getting a nice solution by including a bit of
