Email to three of my four domains on dreamhost is hard bouncing right now. I just opened a support ticket but haven’t heard anything yet, and had a less than useless live chat session about it.
I don’t see anything relevant on the status page. The bounce message is below. Is anybody else seeing this?
email@example.com (expanded from
firstname.lastname@example.org): can’t create user output file. Command output:
procmail: Couldn’t read
Error while writing to "/var/mail/dhmail"

Just received a test message from dreamhost, looks like they fixed it.
Here is the explanation of what happened from support…
Basically, this happened when your email moved to a different mailfiler
and have message filtering enabled. The procmail file on the mail server
didn’t properly update in this case, and we fixed the issue now. Your
email account is working now.
