Procmail problem


My .procmailrc used to work normally until a few days ago,when it started giving an error saying ,that it found a suspicious .procmailrc. Does this have anything todo with permissions of that file,as I kept on changing the permissions of the files in general .....?


TIA

From "man procmail"


Quote:
Suspicious rcfile "x" The owner of the rcfile was not the recipient or root, the file was
world writable, or the directory that contained it was world
writable, or this was the default rcfile ($HOME/.procmailrc) and ei-
ther it was group writable or the directory that contained it was
group writable (the rcfile was not used).
