Description of problem:
Setgid flag to /usr/bin/procmail should be back.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install procmail from RH 7.1
2. Install postfix from RH 7.1 powertools (instead sendmail)
3. Try to send mail to new created user (which one has not own mailbox
Actual Results: As You know, postfix is running as user mail (not root)
<firstname.lastname@example.org>: can't create user output file. Command output:
procmail: Couldn't create "/var/spool/mail/test" procmail: Lock failure
on "/var/spool/mail/test.lock" procmail: Error while writing to
/var/spool/mail/test didn't exisit before delivered this mail
To fix this problem chmod g+s /usr/bin/procmail.
Sorry for my borken english. :(
The procmail code isn't auditable, the setgid flag is not going back on: We
don't trust it.
