The man procmail says....
"line arguments are present, it starts to look for a file
named $HOME/.procmailrc. According to the processing
recipes in this file, the mail message that just arrived
gets distributed into the right folder (and more). If no
rcfile is found, or processing of the rcfile falls off the
end, procmail will store the mail in the default system
If no rcfiles and no -p have been specified on the command
line, procmail will, prior to reading $HOME/.procmailrc,
interpret commands from /etc/procmailrc (if present)."
When installed on Debian it did not come with an /etc/procmailrc
so if you dont have a personal .procmailrc file then my understanding of the
above is that it should deliver to the normal /var/spool/mail/$USER
or whatever the default mail spool file is.
Best though is give it a test. Send some mail and see where it ends up.
PS. My return addr should be Mike.Lake@nospam.uts.edu.au if not let me know.
