Installation issues with www-data (user) and awstats package.

The user 'www-data' needs a mail alias created by the installer; because cron sends mail to it

This is a problem for procmail, which cannot write to /var/www/Maildir (using the default installation).

The cron mailing is generated by awstats (which runs as www-data), so this bug may originate upstream (Debian).

The cron/awstats mailing can be averted by having the installer edit awstats.conf to use $hostname for SiteDomain=""



We're discussing this in IRC... I'll post some additional information shortly.
