Are you using the `backup' example from the man page?
I had the same errors. They appear when procmail receives two mails at
the same time. The recipe doesn't have a lock, so there is a race
condition between the two ls and rm commands.
It is totally harmless, as it just indicates that procmail can't find
a file it would have deleted anyway.
This will prevent the error messages (I use this myself):
# Safety net:
| cd backup && rm -f dummy `ls -t msg.* 2>/dev/null | sed -e 1,32d` 2>/dev/null
Actually, I don't think the last redirection is needed: rm -f should
work (or fail) silently.
