doc/guides/procmail -- comments, please
I just collected infobits I have been repeatedly
asked to figure out, and it now includes all of
the details I can think of. (For ZMailer integration.)
Can you few procmail users think anything that should
be added here ?
------------------ doc/guides/procmail ------------------
For running PROCMAIL as your local delivery agent:
You need to mofigy/verify three (3) files:
In the router configuration there is a parameter, which controls on
how the local addresses look when rewritten:
# Does our "local" channel accept domain (@) at the user part ?
# ZMailer's mailbox does accept. If you use something else, and
# it doesn't accept, comment this away!
In the scheduler configuration we must leave clauses for "local/file*",
and "local/pipe*" in front of "local/*" intact, as they handle things
that procmail can not do by itself. Then we continue by modifying the
"local/*" clause to choose proper command:
# Originally we had 3 hour expiry, but if your local system goes to
# a fizz (freezes, that is), your local mail may start to bounce
# before anybody notices anything...
# want 20 channel slots, but only one HOST
# Do MIME text/plain; Quoted-Printable -> text/plain; 8BIT
# conversion on flight!
< command="mailbox -8"
> #command="mailbox -8"
# Or with CYRUS server the following might do:
#command="sm -8c $channel cyrus"
# Or with PROCMAIL as the local delivery agent:
< #command="sm -8c $channel procm"
> command="sm -8c $channel procm"
And lastly, the sm configuration needs to be made sure it has specfication
for "procm" so that "sm" knows what it needs to do, and where your procmail
