How can I get procmail to create the directory it needs?
As you no doubt read on the procmail manpage: | If the mailbox name ends in "/", then this | directory is presumed to be a maildir folder; i.e., proc- | mail will deliver the message to a file in a subdirectory | named "tmp" and rename it to be inside a subdirectory | named "new". Now ... I obviously don't use maildir format, but to me, this would imply a format something like: :0 * ^List-Id:[^<]+<freebsd-\/[^.]+ FreeBSD/$MATCH/ I'm assuming that the leading "Maildir/" is redundant, as is the pointer to the "new" folder. -- Paul Chvostek <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> it.canada http://www.it.ca/ Free PHP web hosting! http://www.it.ca/web/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
