    I'm using RH Linux 7.2 with the bundled sendmail and procmail. The test results were all ok but when I use the sanitizer and a CFG file within procmail, the promail log says: "Insecure dependency in require while running setuid at <path/to/anomy/>".
    I've read this post before and added Bjarni's solution (DROPPRIVS=yes) to the /etc/procmailrc.

    After that I run into a new problem with a new error message in the procmail log: " Can't use an undefined value as a symbol reference at <path/to/anomy/>"
    There is another post with this same problem but so far there is no solution. Check this post:

    Does anyone know how to fix the UID problems with anomy and procmail??
