smail doesn't read ~/.forward file
I am using smail on my debian slink box with 2.2.10 kernel.
I set up my ~/.forward file in order to sort my mail through procmail
("|/usr/bin/procmail") but it didn't work.
Trying various .forward files, I figured out that this file is not
read at all.
My /etc/smail/config includes a line corresponding to the directors
file (director_file="directors") and /etc/smail/directors contains
driver=forwardfile, owner=$user, nobody, sender_okay;
file=~/.forward, checkowner, owners=root, modemask=002,
My ~/.forward file is chmoded 600 and owned by me (melyan) and my
I tried commenting line 'caution=0-10...' due to the UID procmail
runs with (root) but it didn't work also.
What could be wrong with my configuration ?
I would be grateful for your help.
