Sorry to bring this up again, but I have to consider procmail faulty in

Thanks to the people who pointed out $SHELL and $LOG, and that the use of
tcsh might be a problem. However, I ran this simple test:
I can only offer some trivialities:
1. Does $HOME/Mail/inbox exist, and is it writable by you? Is
$HOME/Mail rwx by you?
2. Put the SHELL=/bin/sh as the first line of your .procmailrc.
3. Quote your path. (PATH="/bin:/usr...") Shouldn't be necessary, but...
4. Again, this probably shouldn't matter, but try setting
That's all I can offer right now. What seems most likely to me is that
the SHELL=/bin/sh isn't the first line in your .procmailrc. I think what
may be happening is that procmail is using whatever usual shell to
process the commands up until the SHELL assignment, then using the
shell in SHELL to process the rest of the file. That would result in
the variables DEFAULT and ORGMAIL being returned to their default values.
