[Esd-l] procmail dropping "F" off "From " line

I had that problem (intermittently for a day) using version [ procmail v3.21
2001/06/29 | Redhat 7.1 ]

However, I traced the problem to a munged up (ie. user error) configuration
file with SpamAssassin.  I have not seen the problem since, nor was
upgrading procamil required.

This has bitten some people, and was fixed by upgrading procmail.
Could some people who was having this problem and fixed it please tell
us which version of procmail you were using that had the problem, and
which version you installed that fixed the problem?

  In 1998 more than three times as many people in the US were killed
  by incompetent physicians than were killed by handguns, yet the
  President of the A.M.A. is adopting "gun safety" as his platform.
