I set up following .procmailrc

:0 c
* ! ^X-Loop:

but, I can't forward e-mails

Did you tell postfix to use procmail?? I have the following in my '~/.forward':

"|IFS=' ' && exec /usr/bin/procmail -f- || exit 75 #user"

Set something like: LOGFILE=/home/you/procmail.log

and see what shows up. Paste it in here, and we'll be able to help more.

  • why the c after :0 ? delete it
  • Knows your MTA something about procmail? under exim4 there is a procmail router...
  • if not, use also a .forward with something like that:

    "|IFS=' ' && exec /usr/local/bin/procmail || exit 75 #your_user_name"
  • whats with a logfile in your .procmailrc?

The c after :O means to do this rule to a copy of the message. I assume the intent is to send a copy along and still receive the message. – Bill Weiss Jul 9 '09 at 4:39
yes, I think so too, but there is an nother rule missing behind. Perhaps this is the problem... – ThorstenS Jul 9 '09 at 7:56
It will fall through and deliver as normal. That's reasonable. – Bill Weiss Aug 30 '09 at 18:57
