My home server is running CentOS-7.1
I’m running postfix and dovecot on it. I collect email from a few sources with fetchmail and move it to ~/Maildir/cur/ with procmail.

Or at least, I did do this. For some reason procmail has stopped doing its job, and the email that I collect is finishing in /var/spool/mail/tim/

I can’t work out what has caused this, or what the cure is. I haven’t changed postfix or dovecot config files, or .procmailrc. I did stop and re-start postfix and dovecot on the server, which I haven’t done for some time, so it is possible some earlier upgrade has come into play.

Any advice or elucidation gratefully received.

    You will have to give us more details about your setup. Can we guess that fetchmail directly hands the mail to procmail as the MDA? If so verify that your procmail recipe is really used. Enable verbose logging by

    VERBOSE=yes LOGABSTRACT=all LOGFILE=/desired/path/to/procmail.log

    If your fetchmail setup involves postfix or dovecot, then please provide details.

    Things do not start to behave differently without a system change. So think about what you might have changed. Any updates applied? While saying so, you hopefully run CentOS 7 latest and not 7.1.
