Subject: Re: How to simulate procmail
The user's .procmailrc is irrelevant, deposit the mail directly into
their maildir into a folder named SYSTEM_ALERT or something like that.
If they are overquota, they must be storing mail on your server, so
you don't care where they forward to.
If they have a procmail receipt to forward all their mail to, let's
say a gmail account, they will never read mail on my local server, so
they will never see the alert.
I need to deliver the alert in the mailbox they are actually reading.
Put the message into the user's login prompt will be more practical.
A message to alert the user when the quota is 90% full would be more
Automated emails, especially email from 'root', 'admin', could be easliy
lost along with spam mails therefore would never reach the user.
