Is there any procmail usenet groups available?
no but many procmail questions are asked and answered on comp.mail.misc
If not, wouldn't it be an idea to create it?

bit of math says 15 messages/day. The total size of the mailbox is 18megs
(well 140kb of that is Alan Stebben's procmail library).
I think that the list is available as a digest (am I right? anyone?) if that
would help at all...
