I am using procmail as a mail sorter and forwarder. Recently I upgraded (?)
to Solaris 2.5 from SunOS 4.1.3. I got an error message whenever the
.forward process was triggered. This error message declared the address
(#elby) to be unsafe for mail forwarding. The original .forward file was:
"|IFS=' ' &&exec /export/home/dssar1/elby/bin/procmail -Y -f-||exit 75 #elby".
I found that by removing the kludge '#elby' from the above command, everything
SEEMS to work fine. Can you give me some insight into what send mail problem
the #USER-NAME kludge was suppose to fix? Does a newer version of send mail
that is used in Solaris 2.5 no longer need this kludge? Or am I setting myself
up for disaster by removing it from the .forward file?
Thank you for consideration in responding to my inquiry. And thank you for your
continued support of this wonderful program.
