My system is a Cobalt Raq 4 - which is based on Redhat Linux, version
of procmail is
Contents of $HOME/.procmail.rc
Did you really mean to tell procmail to chdir to /home/spool/mail?
You understand that this means that relative (non-absolute) paths will
be relative to that directory.
It cant create "IN-testing" see below for the contents of the logfile
procmail: Error while writing to "_bXFQ.littlebl"
procmail: Lock failure on "IN-testing.lock"
procmail: Assigning "LASTFOLDER=IN-testing"
procmail: Opening "IN-testing"
procmail: Error while writing to "IN-testing"
Im guessing its a permissions problem, can anyone point me in the
Does /home/spool/mail/IN-testing exist? What are the permissions
on it? What are the permissions on /home/spool/mail? Is this taking
place as a user that has write permission to both /home/spool/mail and
/home/spool/mail/IN-testing? If not, that's the problem.
