I wanted to run ASK (http://www.paganini.net/ask/) on my mail. I’ve done it before and have setup everything ‘correctly’, but I get “fcntl” problems trying to ‘lock’ the mail. (ASK does, that is) Mutt will also get these problems if you run it inside a shell.
From what I can tell, it’s an NFS problem, though I’ve read that the Postfix mailer doesn’t need these locks.
I know that this is a rather obscure problem, but does anyone have any possible solutions for me? Would piping everything through procmail make a difference? Is there something that I’m doing wrong?
