The interesting thing is this: when the script terminates without
paging me (because the current time is out of range of the times
during which I wish to be paged, or the "don't page" file exists),
I get error messages in my .maillog and hence in the output of
mailstat. This doesn't happen consistently, leading me to believe
it may be due to a lockfile problem or something simlar (note in
the .maillog below there are 5 messages indicated, only 4 of which
caused errors -- if I'm reading it right).
Anyone know why this would be? And what I could do to fix it?
Procmail gets a SIG_PIPE when a pipe action doesn't read all of its
input. See the Mini-FAQ; <http://www.iki.fi/~era/procmail/mini-faq.html>
BTW, you can probably handle the timing right in your .procmailrc by
looking at the timestamp on the From_ line. Avoiding a call to an
external script is always a big win performance-wise and it's not all
that hard to do.

The quick and dirty fix is to just add an :i flag to this recipe.
