After building a new mail server, Linux 2.4.19, running sendmail 8.12.6,
Perl 5.8.0 and html-trap.procmail,v 1.137 2002-12-22 for some reason it
stopped processing the poison file list. It does trap and quarantine .exe
files and others, but not extra file specified in the poisoned file, they
are just passed through but do include the X-Security header line.
Any idea how I might have broke it, what I should look for? I couldn't
find anything on John's web pages like this.
Here are some details, let me know if I missed anything pertinent.
Here is perms and location for poison list:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2093 Jan 12 05:25 /etc/procmail/poisoned
the user's procmailrc:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1086 Jan 12 05:50 .procmailrc
# this file must already exist, with proper permissions (rw--w--w-):
# Finished setting up, now run the sanitizer...
the quarantine file is located at $HOME/hold with drwxrwxr-t owned by the
user with group mail which sendmail runs as. These perms work well for
quarantine and I've tried with drw--w--w- same problem. I forget where I
got the idea for these perms; old style maybe?
