The relevant log entries are:
Mar 5 23:50:50 extmail sendmail:g267oWi01994:
proto=smtp, daemon=MTA, relay=localhost.localdomain[127.0.0.1]
Mar 5 23:50:59 extmail sendmail:g267oWi01994:
And that's as far as it goes.

Sorry. I'm clueless. I do not recall doing this. Guess I thought the
default configuration would hand it off to "mail." But now that I test
it, that's not working either. At least, when I type "mail bobby" and
fill out the form that follows, it accepts the mail. But when I login
as bobby and type "mail," it says "No mail for bobby."
Quote:>3) how is procmail configured? i.e. .mc definition?
See above, re: clueless.
