comment spamassassin via procmail: .procmailrc moves spam messages, but /etc/procmailrc doesn't
Thanks for your suggestion (I didn't know about VERBOSE=yes...). I have included the resulting log entry. I believe procmail is trying to create/update the files almost-certainly-spam and probably-spam in the directory /var/mail/user (which is actually the fresh-mails mbox), instead of in user's home directory.

Thanks. As I'm clearly a beginner, could anybody point me to documentation that explains why those components need to be users in a UNIX system?

Because mydomain is already my name.
