Forward/procmail where?


#1

Hey there,

Hoping someone can give some guidance here on whether DH uses forward files. I know procmail is suppose to be available, but not sure where to locate that file either.

I am trying to run a cgi script from within either the forward or procmail files.

Thanks in advance,

this depends on what machine you’re on.

assuming you’re on the “new” mail system (Maildir, Courier POP3/ IMAP, Postfix), you can use a .forward file, but it should be named ‘.forward.postfix’.

i’ve updated the procmail documentation for the new mail system.
new version:
https://kbase.newdream.net/index.cgi?area=2626
old version:
https://kbase.newdream.net/index.cgi?area=1155

hope this helps.

i’d suggest piping your mail through procmail, and then using procmail to pipe your mail to the CGI script.
