sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you, basically too busy :(
I've just started to setup for multiple users and fell at the very first
step! The README says to
cd ~system. My problem is that, no matter who I login in as cd ~system
takes me to that users home directory.
Obviously there is no directory /home/system, so I created it and set
the ownerships to SYSTEM.SYSTEM but cd ~SYSTEM (or ~system) still doesn't
work. Also cd ~jgeorge does work!
Help me please.

> I have updated the version of procmail to 3.22-7. The tarballs should
> be available on a Cygwin mirror near you shortly.
> The following are the changes since the previous version:
> o define the root UID to be 18 so that procmail will attempt to
> setuid when running under the LocalSystem account
> o open run control files in text mode so they are parsed correctly
> on binary mode mounts
> Old News:

> The procmail program is used by Red Hat Linux for all local mail

> for automatic filtering, presorting, and other mail handling jobs.
> Procmail is also the basis for the SmartList mailing list processor.
> See the procmail home page for more details:
> Please read the README file:
> since it covers requirements, installation, known issues, etc.
> To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
