Re: procmail

Do I need a .forward file if these lines are in my /etc/exim.conf? I thought
there were conditions where no .forward file is necessary.

# This transport is used for procmail

  driver = pipe
  command = "/usr/bin/procmail -d ${local_part}"

# This director runs procmail for users who have a .procmailrc file

  driver = localuser
  transport = procmail_pipe
  require_files = ${home}:${home}/.procmailrc:/usr/bin/procmail
