Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2291
(4.2) procmail no longer reads group-writable .procmailrc's
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
According to procmail's HISTORY file, procmail-3.12
introduced a new behavior with respect to group-writable
.procmailrc files and .procmailrc files located in
group-writable directories. Specifically, procmail ignores
such a .procmailrc unless GROUP_PER_USER has been defined in
config.h at compile-time.
The most recent procmail update packages (3.13.1) do not
have GROUP_PER_USER defined and fail to function properly on
Red Hat Linux systems.
