Still having problems? I'm surprised no one has piped in. So here
Could you be more specific about how procmail is failing you? Check out
'man procmail' and 'man procmailrc' (also 'man procmailex' for handy
examples). Note the .procmailrc LOGFILE and VERBOSE options for getting
diagnostic info. IIRC the .procmailrc permissions should be restricted
(600), but I may be dreaming or thinking of .fetchmailrc. At any rate,
procmail is very powerful (more so as I understand than exim filtering)
and should do anything you need it to do once you get it working.
