[Esd-l] Long file names?

I have a server running sendmail as a relay with procmail setup in the sendmail.cf file as described in your documents, all has been working well for a few months but today the /var/log/procmail.log file reported this:

Mangling executable filename "Health magazine,Health informationfor alternative health,alternative medicine and alternative therapy - family health ne...".

Also there were a whole lot of procmail processes that were stuck with bash subshells running defunct. Sendmail was running but rejecting connections.

I killed the procmails and perl processors and sendmail started accepting connections again.

Is there maybe a problem with filenames that are to long?
