Author: dvalin Date: To: dng Subject: [DNG] Where would exim have put the emails?
My regrettable rashness in leaving "fetchall" in .fetchmailrc during
the first mail fetch on my new beowulf install has me chasing 91
lost or mislaid emails.
I also had no "mda" option in .fetchmailrc, so delivery to port
25should feed them to exim, I figure:
# lsof -i4:25
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE
exim4 2278 Debian-exim 3u IPv4 1545 0t0
TCP greipner:smtp (LISTEN)
Although I had:$ more .forward
"|exec /usr/bin/procmail -t"
procmail does not appear to have run, as the .procmailrc from theold
host has not led it to disperse emails to any of a dozen mailboxes,and
there's no mail/log file.A It is there:
$ ls -l /usr/bin/procmail
-rwsr-sr-x 1 root mail 104404 Nov 17 2017 /usr/bin/procmail*
A "locate exim | more" does not elicit anything resembling a mail
Have I lost 'em, or are there still places to look?
In the interim, I'll ditch the "fetchall" and give "mda procmail" in
.fetchmailrca go Now I remember why I'm reluctant to update stuff.
