  Configuring sendmail on Jaguar
Subject:   procmail eating up all my CPU

Ive set up my web/mail server, and it works. Sort of. I can get and send email just fine. Ive got two domains hosted at home, both fully working, both mail and web.
But Ive got at least two procmail procceses running all the time, sometimes four, and they are eating up all my CPU and using a lot of memory. Earlier today I saw 9 swapfiles.
What is procmail doing? I recieve about two emails a day, and sends about as many.


Hope you can help :)

    I'm experiencing the same problem on practically an identicle SOHO situation as you've described. It only started yesterday. Prior to that procmail has behaved very well. I'm presently at a loss as to the sudden cause of this. If you have any insights, I'd love to hear them. Mind you, my mail server is down right now for a system upgrade. :( I expect to be back up and running in the next 24hrs though, and look forward to anything you can share from your experience. Btw, my platform is OpenBSD 3.4 (I just upgraded from 3.1 today). My MTA is qmail.
