Description Scott Robbins 2022-05-28 12:19:42 UTC
Description of problem:
There is no maildrop package for RHEL-8.x

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
There is a maildrop rpm for Fedora but none for RHEL. It would be nice to have as it is a handy tool to use for servers running mail. It's relatively easy to create. Courier-maildrop has a specfile in their tarball. (Doing yum-builddeps shows that it needs courier-unicode and courier-unicode-devel as dependencies, in my case, I built those from Fedora 32 srpms without problem.)
Once deps are installed, doing rpmbuild --bb maildrop.spec (from the maildrop tarball) produces an rpm for RHEL-8. It would be nice to have an official rpm for RHEL

I would like to add the same request.  We have updated to a virtual mail server, and procmail apparently does not support virtual mail.  Use of maildrop would be appreciated
