Sorry but this doesn't make sense. It's better to download all into a
mailbox and then run formail and procmail over whole mailbox. it's
faster to get news directly from NNTP and store them in MBOX and when
job is done the NNTP is closed.
Would you happen to know how slow it would be if each article would
be separately feed to procmail during news fetch...it is and consumes
reseurces a lot. No need to wake up sysadm.
And you can always write shell sript that first call pgpnews
and then formail&procmail. Very simple.
