Sorry for not being very clear. As 'man procmailrc' says,
'FROM_DAEMON' is shorthand for a lengthy pattern that is intended to
match messages sent from daemons/servers/etc. You can see the full

sanitizer setup with a test message from root to yourself. The
sanitizer will not 'notify sender' if the sender is root or any other
daemon that matches the expanded 'FROM_DAEMON' pattern. Try testing
it again with a test message sent from a normal user and see if it
