Errors like that indicate the script has been corrupted. How did you
download and install the script? Did you edit the script? If so, what
editor did you use? It may have done something "helpful" like wrapping
long lines.

You may want to download it again to see if that corrects the problem.

You should also only run it on one user's mailbox (from their
.procmailrc in their home directory) until you get it configured the
way you want; then you can use /etc/procmailrc to enable it for all

  Failure to plan ahead on someone else's part does not constitute an
