I am not following you here. There is no entry in my dovecot.conf file
under 'protocol lda; for 'log_path'. Are you inferring that I should
create one?

Second, what would that have to do with the failure of any mail to be
properly delivered. Postfix simply stuck them back into the queue until
I switched back to Procmail to get them delivered.

Your eyes are weary from staring at the CRT. You feel sleepy. Notice how
restful it is to watch the cursor blink. Close your eyes. The opinions
stated above are yours. You cannot imagine why you ever felt otherwise.
