Could you be a little more specific? I tried searching for the "Problems
with deliver (LDA)"; however, I am not sure if I found the one you are
referring to.

In any case, I would like to know why it is not working as an LDA
correctly on my system. Procmail, or just the build-in Postfix LDA works
fine. According to the literature I have read, it should be working.
