FAQ
Hello,

I had the Mailman lists working but needed to update the URL's in the
mm-cfg.py file to change the name. I now cannot send mail to the lists when
using procmail to force it through SpamAssassin.


I get the following errors in my maillog:

Mar 7 12:37:15 xaanm10anp sendmail[17241]: m27HbF5V017240:
to="|/usr/bin/procmail -m MAILMAN=vam /etc/procmailrc",
ctladdr=(8/0), delay�:00:00, xdelay�:00:00,
mailer=prog, pri0638, dsn=5.0.0, statÊn't create output

Mar 7 12:37:15 xaanm10anp sendmail[17241]: m27HbF5V017240: m27HbF5V017241:
DSN: Can't create output

Here's what I have:

Red Hat AS4 Update4
Sendmail 8.13
Mailman 2.1.5
Procmail 3.22


Mailman and procmail have the sym link in /etc/smrsh.

If I send email to a list as myself from the list server without using
procmail, the email gets posted to the list.

If I use procmail I get the error above.

When I changed the URL information in mm-cfg.py I also ran the following on
all the lists.

/usr/lib/mailman/bin/arch vam
/var/lib/mailman/archives/private/vam.mbox/vam.mbox

And

/usr/lib/mailman/bin/withlist -l -r fix_url Vam

These lists were copied over from another server.

The procmailrc file read as follows:

:0fw: *| spamc -u mail

I also updated and recreated the access.db to include the new name.

Does anyone have a clue as to why I would get this error? I have checked
and rechecked all of the permissions I can think of.


Thank you,

Stephen

    First off, you don't want to use procmail to send stuff through
    SpamAssassin. You want to integrate SpamAssassin into your MTA, so
    that all that stuff gets caught before procmail gets called for
    delivery.

    This sounds to me like a procmail problem, and you'd need to ask this
    question on a procmail mailing list.
