Procmail is a mail filtering program.
.procmailrcfile will run on HP/UX. However, if both our primary and secondary mail servers are down or overloaded, it is possible that your mail will be received on a Sun server.
.procmailrctries to launch programs or scripts that require HP/UX.
.procmailrcfile in your home directory, and you will have to create a file named
.forwardwith the following line in it:
"|IFS=' '&&exec /usr/local/bin/procmail -f-||exit 75 #
replacing username with your own username.
If you set up a
.forward as described above, your incoming mail will automatically be processed by Procmail.
You can also run Procmail on an existing mail file. See the man page for instructions.
This is the KNOWN_BUGS file included with the Procmail software.
non-MH mail directories depend on files not changing inode number Messages are stored in non-MH mail directories with a name based on the inode number of the file containing the message. If such a directory is copied to a different location or restored from tape, inode number may change, introducing the possibility of messages being overwritten. SENDMAILFLAGS variable is treated as a single argument to sendmail The assignment SENDMAILFLAGS="-oi -odd" doesn't work as expected as procmail will pass it to sendmail as one argument. TIMEOUT doesn't always work If a shell is invoked then procmail may wait while executing a command for longer than TIMEOUT specifies. Variable capture actions overwrite before executing Variable capture actions clear the value of the variable being captured before the action is executed, thus causing the following action, for example, to not work as desired: variable=|echo "$variable" | tr '[A-Z]' '[a-z]' regexp matching bug Some regexps may return an incorrect value in the MATCH variable, in particular when 'redundant' * or + operators appear on the left- hand side of the \/ token.
