comment find command + enable Exit status to be diff then 0 when not match
The trailing * on the egrep regex is completely redundant. Since you are not using egrep regular expression syntax, plain old grep might be a few microseconds faster.

comment How to reconnect to a disconnected ssh session
@kbyrd Ideally, the OP could switch to this answer instead. Less ideally, it doesn't really matter; the accept mark is just one of several signals to future visitors. But this answer should get a lot more upvotes to properly signal it as "really the correct answer". In the meantime, of course, you are free to edit your own answer, either to point to this one, or to include this information in yours.

comment rt-mailgate not making tickets with fetchmail and procmail
As always, a trailing .* on a regular expression is useless.

--no-verify-ssl is not doing anything when you are not connecting to a https URL.

comment rt-mailgate not making tickets with fetchmail and procmail
The /usr/bin/perl is harmless (provided this is a valid path) but the fact that no log file is being created indicates that Fetchmail is not running Procmail at all (or perhaps Fetchmail is not running!). How do you invoke it? Do you get a Fetchmail log?

comment Emails corrupt and a winmail.dat file attachment added for only one mail box
If the user's client is doing something to the messages after they arrive, the ones delivered to Procmail should still be fine. Adding a simple .procmailrc to save a copy of every incoming message to a temporary location (:0c (newline) /tmp/safety where obviously the destination has to exist and be writable) might help narrow the scope of the problem, at least.

comment Postfix, procmailrc, SpamAssassin letting some but not all spam messages through
Yes, you need to set LOGFILE to a file you have write access to, and capture the log from one of these events which you want to troubleshoot. You should probably also set VERBOSE=yes, perhaps only selectively (inside the condition you want to debug?), perhaps with output to a separate log file.

comment Postfix, procmailrc, SpamAssassin letting some but not all spam messages through
The user comment is a placeholder which should be replaced with your actual account name; but unless you are running an antique Sendmail, this part of the .forward is completely unnecessary. In fact, most Postfix default configurations don't require any .forward at all, and will run Procmail if a .procmailrc file is detected.

Please update the question with a Procmail log excerpt. Obtaining one is probably also sufficient for yourself to diagnose the actual problem.

Unless there is a piece missing from your .procmailrc there is nothing which sets $FROM and so the whitelisting check will never succeed.

Procmail by itself does nothing of the sort, but if the mailbox has a .procmailrc, that could do pretty much anything, possibly without leaving any trace in the log.

comment Should websites live in /var/ or /usr/ according to recommended usage?
@ceejayoz If you have more than about two categories of "stuff" it's much simpler to tell them "we follow the FHS", even though that might require some additional details for some categories of "stuff".

comment Is a reboot required to refresh permissions after adding a user to a new group?
Actually, turns out that the real problem was that I was reusing an SSH master session. Disconnecting that by removing the ControlPath socket and logging in again resolved the problem.
