You're right, it has to be owned by the person who its for... It also can't
be world writable either...either one of these settings being incorrect will
cause procmail to stop. It's a security issue... Will L G

Somebody more knowledgeable than me will probably correct this, but...

I believe that the .procmailrc must be owned by the correct user's 
account.  I recall reading something once about delivery errors for 
procmail if the rc file is not owned and/or permissioned correctly.
