I'm a new procmail user and I have a unique problem. I use procmail to
filter mail from certain users and forward it to my pager. When I am
reading my mail with another application I would rather not have procmail
process my pagerNames.rc file, since my local mail reader will beeb.
Usually I read my mail with pine, so essentially I want a procmail recipe
that will detect wether or not pine is running, and if not process my
pagerNames recipes. Is this possible? I realize it is out of the scope
of what a mail filter should do, but it would be very useful.
I would also like some pointers to resources on how to have procmail
notify pine that there is mail in a folder (or configure pine to notify me
if there is mail in a folder other than the inbox) and also pointers on
how to trim the from and subject headers before forwarding to my pager.
