Description whitem 1999-02-19 02:44:04 UTC
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
-----
ftp@suntech7.com

   ----- 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
below:

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

Verify that you are still having the problem with procmail-3.13.1-1
available on the updates site.  Reopen this bug if you still
experience problems.
