Hi Darren,
I could be wrong but I thought the limit on the id cache was 8192
 try that instead of 10000 aside from that the same setup does me fine.

i'm having difficulty fixing a problem with formail.   using
it to maintain a cache of msg-ids (to avoid dupes)
procmail recipe is :

      :0 Whc: msgid.lock
      | /usr/bin/formail -D 10000 msgid.cache

      :0 a:

it's been working fine for about a year.  then recently, i
started running some list archives thru procmail to weed out
dupes, and it didn't work.

proclog gives :

procmail: Locking "msgid.lock"
procmail: Executing "/usr/bin/formail,-D,10000,msgid.cache"
procmail: Program failure (1) of "/usr/bin/formail"
procmail: Assigning "LASTFOLDER=/usr/bin/formail -D 10000 msgid.cache"
procmail: Unlocking "msgid.lock"

it's odd : if the msgid.cache file does not exist, it will log
the first msgid to pass through it.  however, it doesn't log
any more.   --- any ideas ?
