I already posted this problem one or two weeks ago but yet were not able to solve the problem - so I post it again ;)

I fetch mail from a POP3 box and let procmail invoke deliver in order to put the received mail into my IMAP box. Unfortunately it never arrives there and the mail seems to be gone. Would really be interested if somebody could tell me where the mail has gone to (after executing procmail/deliver). 



* ^TO.*test at
| /usr/lib/cyrus/bin/deliver -a tcn tcn

This is the console output when running fetchmail as root:

# fetchmail --keep
1 message for 376635 at (832 octets).
reading message 376635 at of 1 (832 octets) procmail: [19946] Sat May 31 17:04:12 2003
procmail: Assigning "LOGFILE=/var/log/procmail"
procmail: Opening "/var/log/procmail"
 not flushed

And this is procmail's logfile:

procmail: Match on "(^((Original-)?(Resent-)?(To|Cc|Bcc)|(X-Envelope|Apparently(-Resent)?)-To):(.*[^a-zA-Z])?).*test at"
procmail: Executing "/usr/lib/cyrus/bin/deliver,-a,tcn,tcn"
procmail: Assigning "LASTFOLDER=/usr/lib/cyrus/bin/deliver -a tcn tcn"
>From root  Sat May 31 17:04:12 2003
 Subject: test19
  Folder: /usr/lib/cyrus/bin/deliver -a tcn tcn                            1041
procmail: Notified comsat: "tcn@:/usr/lib/cyrus/bin/deliver -a tcn tcn"

So, as already mentioned above without all the procmail stuff fetchmail puts the mail into my local mbox file; but after running procmail/deliver the mail is lost. What happened to the mail, where was it gone to?

For you need more information concerning my configuration I'd be glad to provide you with any config details you require :-)

Please help :-)
