Description Joshua Jensen 2000-07-13 13:23:58 EDT
"rpm -e procmail" should have warned me about:

Jul 13 12:41:28 webserver sendmail[22342]: MAA22340: MAA22342: DSN: User
Jul 13 12:41:28 webserver sendmail[22343]: MAA22342: SYSERR(username):
Cannot exec \
	/usr/bin/procmail: No such file or directory
Jul 13 12:41:28 webserver sendmail[22342]: MAA22342: to=tcg,
delay=00:00:00, \
	xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=local, stat=Operating system error

Yes, one can re-configure sendmail to not use procmail... but by default,
Red Hat's sendmail rpm  *does* seem to require procmail for normal
