[Esd-l] Error writing to Procmail log

2 things to check:
1. The log file needs to have write permissions for anyone:
#  chmod ugo+w /var/log/procmail.log

2. In your email, you don't seem to have the leading "/". Is this a typo, 
or is your configuration pointing to  "var/log/procmail.log", when it 
should point to "/var/log/procmail.log"
