I have a couple of questions. First, why is it a good idea to install
procmail suid? Isn't this more of a security risk?
Second, we have the latest sendmail installed sgid with procmail as the
LDA and a systemwide procmailrc everyone runs. Periodically, I see messages:
timeout waiting for input from local during Draining Input
I'm told I should look at whether the LDA (procmail) is generating too much
output for sendmail. How can I check this? How can I throttle it back if it
is a problem?
Related to this, I'm running an older version of procmail, perhaps upgrading
to 3.22 might solve it?
