I have spent TOO much time on this now, and still have no solution.
I believe the problem must have to do with folder permissions... The
user is a network user (a lot of people login as that user), and one
thing I've noticed is that the home directory is group writeable. I
think that must be why the procmail determines that the .procmailrc
file is suspicious. I don't know of an easy way to change this... I
don't have control over the NFS folder.
I'm now using mailbox_command to direct incoming mail directly to
procmail. I like this solution, but it hasn't made any difference.
I've tried using the /etc/procmailrcs folder, and several other
tricks, but for that user, nothing seems to work.
Does anyone have a reference to setting up a user to do 'processing'
of requests via email? How is this generally accomplished?
