Procmail not picking up matches from Recipe
I've posted this to the procmail mailing list but include it here in
case this is a Debian specific issue?
I have the following setup:
Debian Woody - getmail, mutt, exim, procmail. Mailboxes are maildir
I am a relative newbie to Linux and a novice when it comes to mail
handling. I've used Nancy
McGough's guide to setting up procmail and from the logs, procmail
to be working, except that it is not picking up matches as I would
I've set up two recipes:
Logfile output from: tac Procmail/pmlog|less:
Subject: Cron <clive@apollo> /usr/bin/getmail
From clive@apollo Sat May 03 13:50:18 2003
procmail: Unlocking "/var/mail/clive.lock"
procmail: Acquiring kernel-lock
procmail: Opening "/var/mail/clive"
procmail: Assigning "LASTFOLDER=/var/mail/clive"
procmail: Locking "/var/mail/clive.lock"
procmail: No match on
procmail: Assigning "INCLUDERC=/home/clive/Procmail/rc.subscriptions"
procmail: No match on "^Subject:.*test"
procmail: Assigning "INCLUDERC=/home/clive/Procmail/rc.testing"
procmail: Assigning "MAILDIR=/home/clive/Mail"
procmail:  Sat May 3 13:50:18 2003
I am collecting mail every 10 minutes (cron job) and I've been sending
test messages with the subject " a test 1 " etc. I'm also receiving
constant posts to email@example.com and
firstname.lastname@example.org but neither the tests nor the debian
list messages are being picked up by the recipes above; they are just
dropping into the inbox.
I suspect that I'm missing something really obvious but having gone
round in circles for the last 24 hours, I need help ;-)
