Uh, right. The problem is that you can configure sendmail to
only allow certain processes to be invoked period. If
pathname/procmail isn't one of those allowed processes, (and
it isn't in my case) this won't work. For instance our sys admin
only allows mail to be forwarded to a mailbox...
You can still invoke procmail to take mail *from* your inbox and
distribute it to other mailboxes. You could just do this from a
script which invokes procmail before invoking your MUA. Or if it's
allowed (likely not!) run it periodically using cron.
