Re: Procmail battles

An excellent question ... and I'm not sure, which may be the crux of
the problem.  I was under the impression that sendmail, as it is
configured to use procmail, would process ~/.procmailrc when it
delivered mail to /var/spool/mail/pmr.  Now I'm thinking that that is
not necessarily the case.  Can you confirm?  Meanwhile I will see if
there is an option in sendmail.mc that causes procmail to ignore
~/.procmailrc ...

Done.
