Sometimes we have network problems such that the call of

Yup. You don't have an alternative code to return to
sendmail if procmail fails.
Is there a safe way to just have the mail fallback to the main
mailbox? What is that "|| exit 75" code that I see in some examples?
The "|| exit 75" returns a temporary (instead of permanent)
error to sendmail, causing it to queue the message and attempt
to deliver it to your mailbox again at a later time.
Trust me, you want this, for precisely the reasons you have
