something odd with procmail

something odd with procmail

Post by D Fon » Sat, 22 Jan 2000 04:00:00


So, I'm trying to setup procmail for some people here, but I"m getting
some strange behavior. We have a Solaris 2.6 machine running NIS, and a
mailserver running 2.7 with sendmail 8.9.1 and procmail v3.11pre7.

I setup the .forward as such:

"|IFS=' ' && exec /usr/local/bin/procmail -f- || exit 75 #username"

For some reason it doesn't appear to always work on the 2.7 machine.
It's almost like the .forward file isn't read. However, when I go to the
mailserver or any other machine not running 2.7 it works
fine(/usr/lib/sendmail -bv username) throws back at me the fact that
it's being piped to procmail. While on the 2.7 machine it just says

deliverable: mailer local, user testuser

It gets better...for some users it works fine. I tried looking at file
permissions, shells, username doesn't seem to make any

Any ideas?



1. procmail to grab something from body

I have a rather lenghtly procmail script. I need to add one more portion that grabs a custom header and sends it to a script.
this was working fine.
        LOG = "Log in MySQL"
        :0 c
        * ^X-Orig-TO:\/.*
        |/home/mailsort/bin/parse_to_mysql.php $MATCH

Problem is that because I want to catch this from bounce back messages, the X-Orig-TO is no longer a header.
How can i change this to check the body rather then the header????
