    Default procmail: Insufficient privileges

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

    procmail: Insufficient privileges
    Diagnostic-Code: X-Unix; 77
    Last-Attempt-Date: Tue, 9 Dec 2003 15:15:02 -0700
    Return-Path: <MAILER-DAEMON>
    Date: Tue, 9 Dec 2003 15:15:02 -0700
    From: Mail Delivery Subsystem <MAILER-DAEMON>

    The original message was received at Tue, 9 Dec 2003 15:15:02 -0700
    from localhost

    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

    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
