Yes, if both exist and are safe.

Well, maybe your possible cause is the reason. You didn't elaborate, but
I'm guessing that the permissions on ~/.procmailrc or on the home directory
itself may be too loose; that /etc/procmailrc has code that delivers all
messages (or all the messages you've tried); or that procmail isn't getting
invoked at all and /etc/procmailrc isn't read either.
