comment how to use procmail as a MDA for postfix? (mailbox_command)
-d is for when Procmail is invoked as root; but with mailbox_command, it won't be -- Postfix will already run it with the recipient's UID and GID. Similarly, -f- is probably not necessary with Postfix, as there should not be a From_ line on the incoming message.

See also github.com/hernejj/workspace-grid-cinnamon-applet/tree/master/… which adds the ability to arrange workspaces in a grid.

comment How do I change the number of available workspaces in Cinnamon?
Hmm, this is XFCE, not Cinnamon? Somewhat mystifyingly, the Cinnamon Workspaces settings pane (as of Debian 8.1) does not allow you to change the number of workspaces.

script has an option to include timestamps in the typescript, specifically as support for the scenario you seem to be looking for.

What exactly are you looking for? You can postprocess the output to clean it up, although lamentably there is not a standard utility which does this.

comment how to prevent procmail listening to the world
While having a MTA running when you don't need one is certainly unnecessary, that is quite different from having an infected box. If they're already on your box, they don't care what it's listening to (except maybe to harden it on your behalf so as not to have others hack it, too).

comment Why dialog doesn't support emacs shell on Debian?
With a sufficiently new Emacs, M-x term does work with a graphical debconf, but you may need to pull in additional dependencies. Tangentially, see also bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/emacs24/+bug/1285864 which suggests installing ncurses-term.

I guess dmst.aueb.gr/dds/pubs/conf/2015-MSR-Unix-History/html/… is where this ended up?

comment Procmail not running
I don't see anything in there which would deliver any message locally, and thus nothing which would trigger Procmail. I don't think this setup has any sane chance to integrate your .forward file and still remain true to its goals. See also mail-archive.com/isync-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/…

comment Procmail not running
Not familiar with lsync and googling doesn't turn up anything useful. Is that what's supposed to somehow deliver your email to Procmail? Perhaps you should describe that part of your set-up in more detail.

So did you try the things at iki.fi/era/mail/procmail-debug.html#startup? What's the result?
