Re: [vox-tech] spamassassin + procmail



thanks for the reply.
i have done this and created .procmailrc under /etc/ but when i view the
maillog, it seems
that sendmail is not seeing procmail or procmail is not processing the file.

below is the contents of .procmailrc under /etc

[root@fpj etc]# cat .procmailrc
:0 fw
* < 256000
| /usr/bin/spamc -f

is there something wrong? any changes with sendmail.mc ?
please, anyone?
