Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

if I look at mail.log, the following appears when a mail comes in:-

I can't see where procmail is being configured (I actually do want it, but I'm not sure if the "delivered to command" is correct or not.) I thought the home_mailbox setting in main.cf would get Maildirs to work, but...
Can anyone help?
P.S. once I get it working, is there any way I can get the system to re-process the /var/mail/<user> files into the various Maildirs?
Also, (I forgot to ask) is there an easy way I can get the /var/mail/<user> file(s) that have been created whilst the problem has existed to be re-processed through the system so they go to the correct place(s) (i.e. into the Maildirs)
