I'm using LinuxMandrake 7.2 with sendmail-8.11.0-3mdk and procmail-3.14-3mdk.
Now I just want some mails being forwarded from one user to an other.
I created a .procmailrc file but the mails won't be forwarded. I get the
following errors in the logs:
procmail: Couldn't determine implicit lockfile from "/usr/sbin/sendmail"
procmail: Error while writing to "/usr/sbin/sendmail"
Then in the sendmail logs I have these errors:
May 28 13:25:55 localhost sendmail: f4SBPtu01186: SYSERR(am): Can't
create transcript file ./xff4SBPtu01186: Permission denied
Are you trying to invoke sendmail directly? For simple forwarding, you don't
need to do that. Procmail already knows how to invoke sendmail.
When asking the list for help, it is often useful to send a copy of the
problem recipe, as well as the log file entries.

Tell me what you need, and I'll tell you how to get along without it.
