Hi There,

Can someone please help me with a procmail problem?

I've set up everything as in the tutorial at
<>, but my test mail
bounces with this output:

The original message was received at Thu, 29 Mar 2001 14:32:22 -0800 (PST)
from engmail1 []

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----

My site uses IMAP and I use fetchmail to fetch my mail.  This might be
related to the problem.

Please reply in mail since I don't read this group regularly.

What part of "not found" don't you understand? :)
Either "procmail" is not in that directory, or one or more directories
on that path does not have execute permission.

Why not?  If you ask a question in a newsgroup, you should expect an
answer there.


1. fetchmail/procmail problem

The problem is, when I have procmail put messages that meet a certain
criteria into a folder, it marks all the read messages as unread, except
for the same five each time.  What gives?  It's kind of annoying to find
fifty old messages marked as new each time.  At least it puts them in
the correct folder.

procmail v. 3.13.1
fetchmail v. 5.0.0

This is the simple contents of .procmailrc
