Using procmail and gmail to back-up mail, etc

apps

#1

Hey,

Interesting gmail hack at:

I like the spam (and now virus scanning) part, but like the searchable mail backup even more. I can’t get it to work though. Gmail is forwarding test messgaes sent to the gmail account, so I’m guessing the error is somewhere in the procmail setup.

I set up procmail exactly as per the knowledge base instructions and added the procmail recipe from this article (replacing the relevant info) to the end of the file and get nada.

Here’s the procmailrc file (with generic address info):

DEFAULT=$HOME/Maildir/
MAILDIR=$HOME/Maildir
PMDIR=$HOME/.procmail
LOGFILE=$PMDIR/log
SHELL=/bin/sh
:0

Any ideas or suggestions?
