Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, this is exactly what I
did. I commented out command="mailbox -8" and uncommented
command="sm -8c $channel procm" in the local/* definition. It was then
that I discovered procmail was being asked to deliver mail to aliases,
which clearly wouldn't work. Any ideas? What I want to have done is
procmail be used *only* for user's mailboxes, and zmailer's mailbox be
used for pipes and files.
