Re: procmail slow email delivery

You were right.  My .fetchmailrc file read:
      poll cats.ucsc.edu proto POP3
      user otte with password x is ric here
      keep smtphost otte

I believe it was that last line which was sending the mail to
'ric@otte'.  After I changed that line to simply 'keep', I noticed that
exim is now sending the mail to 'ric@localhost', which is fine.  

My hosts file looks like this:	otte	localhost	otte.ucsc.edu	otte
(with a buch of stuff that I don't understand about IPv6 capable hosts,
added automaticaly by netbase upgrade)
If this doesn't look ok to you, let me know.  

Thanks very much; it looks like things are working now.

Best wishes,
