Honestly, I don't use TIMEOUT's in procmail but common sense tell me
to use a TIMEOUT=10 (or less if you have a blazing system).
Then, honestly, your TIMEOUT is 960. Common sense isn't engineering.
Spare me the quips. Okay, say a well formed (denial of service) message can
target SpamAssassin install causing it to loop until the normal timeout.
Then that lengthy engineered timeout would be distressful.
I haven't used TIMEOUT before, but I'm now considering setting it to 10 at
the beginning of my recipe (and extending it if there is a large attachment
or very large message size) unless someone can prove a large (default)
timeout is neccessary and harmless.
