Now I want to process some email automatically.
So I use fetchmail to fetch mail per second. And use procmail to filter some email message.
My procmail configuration procmailrc is like below

I want to call perlout to create a new file test.cpp
the source code perlout is below

I use the command : fetchmail -akv -m "/usr/bin/procmail -d %T" to call fetchmail and call the procmail.
ButI find the perlout won't run out of my expectation.

and the procmail show that *procmail: Error while writing to "/home/max/perlout
so I think the perl script are not called.
I am sure the perlout path is correct.
Any comments will be welcome.
Thanks in advance.

Have you marked the Perl script as executable?


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
