Is it still <snip>?

I'm not getting email updates so maybe it's changed and I'm filtering it out by mistake?

For thread posts it's <snip>, Nick. Is that what you wanted?

Yes, thanks, I've been filtering them out!

Cheers Marcia, is there a different one for email updates on a forum or is it the same?

That's not garanteed.

btw: anything that doesn't look like a bounce on that email, automagically gets forwarded to abuse@senders'isp.com

The filter to use is on the header line xmailer.

"X-Mailer: WebmasterWorld"

If you want to simply bypass all other filtering for those notifications, then you can insert the following rule near the top of your .procmailrc file:

# free pass for WebmasterWorld notifications
:0
* ^X-Mailer: WebmasterWorld
$DEFAULT

Obviously, this assumes that your procmail is configured correctly and the $DEFAULT variable points to your standard mailbox.
