Here's what appears should happen: each time a list msg is received,
.forward invoked procmail, we come in and munge the subject, forking
off a copy to formail, which attempt redelivery, .forward invokes a
second procmail, ... etc.
But it works OK (no infinite respawn). Subject is munged, and the
message appears in the =dx.ml.new folder, as I'd originally intended.
What piece of knowledge am I missing here?
1) The "delivery" is to formail, which spits output to stdout; it
does *NOT* launch a another email. Without the "f" flag, the message
would disappear into /dev/null
2) The "f" (filter) flag in the "delivery" action says to deliver
the headers or body or both ("h" or "b" or default) to formail; let
formail do its thing; then return the modified text back to procmail
and continue processing.
