Are you running fetchmail as root, as the procmail manpage suggests?
just gave it a try...now, instead of all the mail ending up in my normal
user account, it ends up in root's mailbox.
meteu# cat /etc/aliases | grep root | grep flip
and I've run newaliases since making this entry...
all the mail seems to end up in root's mailbox anyway...like it's
skipping sendmail, basically...which is what it's doing, since I'm
invoking procmail, sendmail aliases aren't going to do anything...
just changed the mda line to "/usr/sbin/sendmail -oem -f %F %T"
so, it's accepting the senmail aliases now...
however, I'm back to where I started...all of the mail ending up in the
flip account even though it is addressed to majordomo@meteu (a sendmail
alias) or otheraccount@meteu (a login account)...
