Is anyone getting this error (its a email I receive)

procmail: Insufficient privileges

I am using mojo as a mailing list. I am using the normal sendmail... I assume its going to be bounces from dead addresses. Ever since I am on westhost 2.0 I am not seeing bounces from dead addresses, only this..

How can I track down what recipient its failing on?

I do have cache all enabled, as this is addressed to postmaster@aus-city.com

Yep I get them also. There should be an attacment to the e-mail that you can open if I am understanding you correctly. Something like "see transcript for details". That should have some details that would help you track down the e-mail that where bad. Not sure if there is a fix for it or not. Think there may be but have not bothered with tracking it down. Seems most scripts that send out will get this if the e-mail is bad. Bet they are AOL addresses.

Thanks but unfortunately there is no attachement and the mail headers are of no help :(

It seems that procmail needs to be configured so root does have access.

Anyone know how to configure procmail?

I got 1000 users on one list and this will quickly get out of hand, I will end up getting 100's of these messages and there is no way to find out who is generating them :(
