Description Ian Macdonald 2003-06-23 13:04:38 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030619

Description of problem:
procmail cannot deliver to a mailbox that is 50 Mb or larger.

Once the mailbox reaches this size, procmail fails with the following error message:

procmail: Error while writing to "folder_name"
procmail: Truncated file to former size
procmail: Incomplete recipe

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a procmail recipe to store mail in a certain folder
2. allow folder to reach a size of 50 Mb
3. mail delivery fails, so message goes to inbox spool instead

Actual Results:  message delivered to inbox

Expected Results:  message should have been delivered to folder in ~/Mail

Additional info:

I have tried rebuilding the latest version from Rawhide, but the problem remains.
