and the funny thing is when i do "chown adabas ...." adabas can read it,
that procmail doesn't like it anymore.
i just looked into /etc/passwd and i seem to have two different adabas-users
Aha!! What's result of these?
ls -ln /var/spool/mail/adabas
i.e., which numeric uid is owned by the file? After
"chown adabas /var/spool/mail/adabas" what is the result of
"ls -ln /var/spool/mail/adabas" ?
Now about those multiple entries... this should give you two numbers.
grep '^adabas:' /etc/passwd | cut -d: -f3
Do the numbers differ? If as root, you say
touch /tmp/foo; chown adabas /tmp/foo; ls -ln /tmp/foo
what number do you get?
And what happens if...
Which one does the "xxxx" here match?
Ok, if i just delete one, what will happen ?
will procmail start delivering to the left one, or will it blow up ?
Probably something good rather than something bad... DEPENDING on who
owns the various files etc.
