This problem you're experiencing surely looks more like a Mutt
problem than a Procmail issue, assuming that Procmail is, in
fact, delivering properly.
However,... why is there a backslash ("\") on your $spoolfile
definition line? That's a line continuation element. What
follows ~should~ cause some sort of syntax error in the
when you start Mutt, depending upon what follows it.
i wish it were so simple. The backslash appears to be a typo in my
post to this list. it is not in my .muttrc.
Procmail seems to be delivering properly, yes. But i notice that the
messages it delivers do not start with "From ". Could this be why
Mutt does not see them?
Also, have you verified the location of mutt_dotlock? I am
Mutt 1.2.5i, and the manual discusses the $dotlock_program
variable, yet my Mutt seems to not recognize it. (Perhaps
due to ./configure options...) Anyway, the locking scheme would
seem to be a significant part of the problem. Perhaps that's
where you should concentrate your investigation.
my mutt_dotlock executable is in /usr/bin
thanks for your reply. i figured my set-up was pretty standard --
that lots of folk use procmail/Mutt. it is being very stubborn.
