procmail doesn't like g+w directories.
I have a user (me) with a home directory that is group writeable. procmail
doesn't like that. Why?
I need to use procmail with that user. How?
Because procmail isn't sure that everyone in that group is as trustable
as you are. Now, if *every* real user on the system has their own
group (this is the default with RedHat and OpenBSD and maybe others),
then you can recompile procmail with the GROUP_PER_USER #define and
it'll then trust a g+w home directory if the group is your primary
The source can be obtained from
(Normally that would be procmail.org, but the registration is broken
right now, so you'll have to use procmail.net instead.)
