I am using fetchmail to retrieve mail from an ISP with the -m option to pass it to procmail. These are my environment settings in .procmailrc
This works fine. It sorts according to the recipes and delivers to the appropriate files in /var/spool/mail. If I cat these files they appear to contain the mail they should. Each message seems to start with the line " STATUS: R"
using the linux mail command (even -f <filenname> to ensure I am reading the right file) there are no messages.
If I use a Windows box and Outlook to retreive using POP3 (which is the eventual aim) I get an authentication error but /var/log/messages reports:Mar 21 15:45:05 Server ipop3d: Login failed user=<userid> auth=<userid> host=<hostname> [192.168.1.2]
Mar 21 15:45:08 Server ipop3d: Command stream end of file while reading line user=<userid> host=<hostname> [192.168.1.2]
I can login remotely using the same userid and password
Why are my mail files unreadable?
