New News:
=== ====
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
delivery. In addition to just delivering mail, procmail can be used
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
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.

Standard News:
======== ====
In the US,
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.

In Germany,
is usually pretty good.

In the UK,
is usually up-to-date within 48 hours.

If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package
then you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another

The setup.exe program will figure out what needs to be updated on your
system and will install newer packages automatically.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin@cygwin.com .  I would appreciate if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list
is the appropriate place.
