I implemented the ipv6 patch. Here's the new release candidate:
I tested fetchmail, the way you indicate. It works fine, both for admin and
non-admin users. Procmail always acts as the mailbox (calling) user. That's why
Sendmail changes user two times, instead of one: root -> smmsp -> corinna
By the way: this combination of fetchmail and procmail is nice. What program do you
use to read the downloaded e-mail?
By the way 2: to be shure: does your procmail put the e-mails in /var/spool/mail?
And can you paste me the output of ls -l /var/spool/mail?
