I'm running Fedora 13 Linux, and sending mail to myself using mutt, and I can't seem to get procmail to run. Below is what my
.forward files all look like. As you can see, they are very simple.
HOME=/home/cory SHELL=/bin/bash PMDIR=$HOME/Procmail LOGFILE=$PMDIR/pmlog LOG=" " LOG="My PATH is currently $PATH My SHELL is currently $SHELL " VERBOSE=yes MAILDIR=$HOME/Mail INCLUDERC=$PMDIR/rc.testing
:0: * ^Subject:.*test IN-testing
The Fedora Project documentation says that the existence of
.procmailrc should "invoke Procmail whenever an MTA receives a new message." As I understand it, when I send myself a message using mutt,
.procmailrc will be read by
procmail and the logfile
pmlog should be created in my
However, this log file never gets created, so it appears that procmail is never being run!
The documentation also states "Fedora 13 provides two MTAs: Sendmail and Postfix. If both are installed, postfix is the default MTA." Since
which postfix results with nothing on my machine, I assume sendmail is being used. Why doesn't sendmail invoke procmail?
