Shortly after my computer died, Roland Hill asked in response to one of
the last posts I typed on my old machine,
Ouch........hope it wasn't too bad for you.
Considering the confusion we already have over maildir and MAILDIR, when
a question uses the orthography "Maildir" away from the beginning of the
sentence is that I am reluctant to answer it. If you'll change
"Maildir" to "maildir" at both occurrences, then yes, delivery to a
maildir requires no local lockfile, and asking procmail to secure one
(which it will do, the default name being $LOCKEXT [which is usually
".lock"] one directory up in the maildir itself rather than in the new/
subdirectory where it's writing the message) is a waste.
Sorry about my use of terms. I meant maildir, as related to qmail-style
Thanks for the quick lesson and answering my question.
