Default Procmail not delivering to mailboxes

I followed the ISP Server setup using Ubuntu Hoary Hedgehog. Everything was working well. However now it appears that Procmail is not delivering mail to user mailbox. I have checked the setup against the HowTo and I have followed exactly.

After sending test email from a Hotmail account the message I get in my mail.log is:

NOV 17 21:21:27 crud-03 postfix/smtpd [7576]: connect from bay14-f21.bay14.hotmail.com[]

NOV 17 21:21:27 crud-03 postfix/smtpd[7576]: E64A21421F7: message-id=<BAY14-F21A0D17A39F9D0E8B8E3F8CB5E0@phx.gbl>

NOV 17 21:21:28 crud-03 procmail[7581]: suspicious rcfile "/var/www/web1/.procmailrc"

NOV 17 21:21:28 crud-03 postfix/local[7580]: E64A21421F7: to=<web1_chuck@crud-03.ccrudolphy.net>, orig_to=<chuck@ccrudolphy.net>, relay = local, delay = 1, status = sent (delivered to command: /usr/bin/procmail -f-)

NOV 17 21:21:28 crud-03 postfix/smtpd[7576]: disconnect from bay14-f21.bay14.hotmail.com[]

When I check my mail with a mail client there is nothing in my mailbox. When I check the directory /var/www/web1/user/web1_chuck/Maildir/cur or new or tmp they are all empty.

The contents of the "suspicious" /var/www/web1/.procmailrc file are:


## INCLUDERC=/var/www/web1/user/web1_chuck/.autoresponder.rc

Don't know what is going on! Sure would appreciate some help as to where to look for answers on how to fix this problem.

Thanks in advance
