I have been using the following simple auto-response routine in .procmailrc
for some time. I usually just copy a file I keep called procmailrc
(including the routine below) to .procmailrc when I go out of town, and
change the XXXXXX you see in the routine to the specific date I'll be back.
Suddenly, it doesn't work. There have been no configuration changes to the
server and I am just at a loss. I deleted it and wrote it over again to
make sure it wasn't anything that happened to the file accidentally and
still have zero response from it. Can anyone here see anything wrong with
what's below? Perhaps I created a typo at some point editing it, though it
still looks fine according to my procmailex man page. If the routine looks
fine, can anyone recommend a test to find out what's failing or where?
.forward files still work, so I know procmail is functional.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
