Do you need a .procmailrc file and a .forward file?

    New user question here: I have a user who says that he deleted the .procmailrc and .forward files in his account's home directory. He wants me to "restore" them. Does he need one? I thought he didn't...

    If he does want a .procmailrc file, where does it go and what does it do? Are there any examples?

    Go on, have a guess
    IIRC, .procmailrc files won't run automatically with eixm, they have to be called explicitly. However, cPanel doesn't create either a .procmailrc of a .forward file within an account, only a user would do that, so presumably he wants you to restore one that he created? If not, then they should be using Forwarders and Filters from within their cPanel account interface to create such things.
