I'm trying to configure a .forward file to redirect emails into the
I looked at the mail filtering faq at:
and the tutorial (section 2.2) which suggests a .forward file,
"|IFS=' ' && exec /usr/local/procmail -f- || exit 75 #username"
I checked that procmail was in that location, and set my username.
I then created the .procmailrc, ~/.procmail folders and then
#Set on when debugging
#Replace `mail' with your mail directory (Pine uses mail, Elm uses Mail)
#Directory for storing procmail log and rc files
After sending messages with and without test in their subject, no email
appeared in IN.testing or in my inbox.
Does anybody know why either procmail doesn't recieve the messages or
why (if it does), it doesn't do anything with them?
