My apologies if this is a duplicate for anyone. I mailed it a couple of
days ago and the system logs show that it was accepted by rc.isc.org, but
I haven't seen it show up yet.
I'm trying to re-implement filter that extracts URLs out of newsgroup
articles. I had a working newsfeeds entry in 1998 , but now that
I'm trying it again I don't have any luck.
newsclip:*:Tp:/usr/bin/procmail -m /usr/services/news/etc/procmailrc.news
doesn't pass anything to procmail; the recipes just get empty, zero-length
messages. Similarly, trying other things like
newsclip:*:Tp:/bin/cat - > /tmp/output
just creates zero-length files.
I'm running inn 2.3.4. Has anything changed in recent versions that
would stop this from working? What am I missing?
