Description whitem 1999-02-18 21:44:04 EST
After installing procmail-3.11pre7-1.hash2 mail could not be
delivered to local or pop mail accounts. Typical error
message follows:

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
procmail: Couldn't create "/var/spool/mail//f/t/ftp"
550 ftp@suntech7.com... Can't create output: Error 0

The only work around thus far was to setup procmail using a
.forward file and .procmailrc file to invoke procmail. See

"|IFS=' ' && exec /usr/bin/procmail -f- || exit 75 #suntech"
