I assume that you mean the ".procmailrc" (dot-procmailrc) in the
home-directory of the user?
Out the box the procmail I have has the following in the global
The "global config file", is that "/etc/procmailrc"?
To reinforce Ruud's statements: the /etc/procmailrc is NOT a dot-file,
because system files shouldn't be hidden. The procmail rc file in the
user's home directory IS a dot-file (to reduce clutter).
If you made a 'procmailrc' file and it wouldn't work in the home dir, it
was probably because it wasn't a '.procmailrc'.
This is probably something I should add to my procdiag script - looking for
the presence of a procmailrc in the user dir and a dot-procmailrc in /etc/
and reporting the likelyhood of a naming failure.
